I was reading the connect to a folder ArcGIS Pro help page, and I noticed this limitation:

 

ArcGIS Pro does not support adding folder connections to the project that access the root node of any disk, for example, C:\ or D:\.

Can anyone provide an explanation as to why this is so?  Connecting to a root drive location has always worked in ArcMap.
