No root files?

Root files are no longer able to be accessed through DropCopy. Will they be added back anytime soon? Am I just not seeing the way to do it?

Security changes in iOS7 prevented root access. For those with jailbroken devices, we still provide this access, but the option is not on by default. You can re-enable file-system browsing by going to the prefs and then choosing "Tell a Friend". The next time you launch DropCopy you should get the file system options when you tap 'Preview Files' from the DropZone screen.

Remember that this has very little functionality with a standard (i.e. non-jailbroken) iOS install due to security restrictions.

see the reply above. The problem is due to changes in iOS7, not in DropCopy. Now you need to jailbreak the phone to have greater filesystem access.
