    I am new in ipad development and i don't know the file system of iPad, but i know the file system of iPhone there is no permission of to access the data outside the application send box, so my question is

    Can i create or use file outside the iPad application SandBox? for example i create a application which write some data in text file save it on root directory and i want to read that file directly same as windows (a window application create a file in C drive and user can open the c drive and read the file.)

    The restrictions on the iPad are basically the same as the iPhone. This is all well documented on the developer website: I suggest you go an read.

    Edit to add. I suggest you start with the Formalized Support for Handling Documents and Files section of the iPad Programming Guide and the links it contains. But not "Of course, it is important to remember that although you can manipulate files in your iPad applications, files should never be a focal part of your application"
