Access C: drive from Xamarin Forms Application - UWP part

am I right, that there is no way to access a folder that is located directly on the C drive?
This can only be done by using a picker and let the user open the folder?
Of course, after that I can store this path for further access. The reason why I'm asking is, that I want to "pool" some directorys for new files.
This files will be downloaded by using a Mobile Device Management tool.
And it wouldn't be userfriendly if they have to open the folder every time the app starts. Or at least, no one should be able to open any folders. Therefore a picker is not really an option.

Any idea how to handle that?

    @flix101 Why not in Appdata ?

    You're talking about c:\users\%username%\AppData? That would be a way, but not a good one. The file sync might be a problem, because this path is unique for every computer, or at least for every user.
