    I’ve moved you post to it’s own thread as it was unrelated to the thread topic.

    Hello and welcome to the forum! :) As to your question above, iOS is an 'app-centric' operating system rather than a hierarchical file system like macOS (using Finder) or Windows (using Explorer), so the native iOS is not accessible to analysis that allows you to view files/folders/roots - an option is 'jailbreaking', described briefly below (check link for much more detail; also the 'hacking forum' where your thread was placed has plenty of information on this topic - look at the post listings).

    You might want to provide the iOS on your iPad Pro (assume the most recent one, i.e. 12.2) - I've never 'jailbreaked' my iPads (have had a half dozen between wife & myself since 2011), so cannot provide any more information - not sure which recent iOSs are 'breakable' - hopefully others w/ experience will 'chime in' - plus, you may want to tell us your reasons for wanting 'root directory access', i.e. there might be other solutions, just saying? Good luck - Dave
