What is the reasoning behind prohibiting Pro from connecting to drive root?

Question asked by tpcolson on Oct 4, 2016

From Connect to a folder—ArcGIS Pro | ArcGIS for Desktop "ArcGIS Pro does not support adding folder connections to the project that access the root node of any disk, for example, C:\ or D:\."

 

This is somewhat of a deal breaker for me. We have many mapped network drives, portable/thumb drives which contain many GIS project and data folders. According to this restriction, I now have to make a separate folder connection to each folder within the mapped network drive (which is many)? That goes against common sense. Just curious what was the reason behind this restrictive work flow.
