Question N3 Directory Tree Layout?

Hello, Everyone
Todayís question maybe redundant? Iíve used a bevy of search terms to ferret out the answer to no avail, so, I will post here and with luck get pointed in the right direction.
Firstly, Iíve been using MS Operating systems, all of my computing life, I understand the file structure on the drives.
My phone this time around is a, Samsung Note 3. After perusing around inside for a while now, Iím finding that Iím becoming, confused with the directory layout?
My phone is still virgin, not rooted. ( if it makes a difference )
Does anyone know of a site or an App. that will graphically show me, my phones directory tree?
I know this sounds silly to everyone, but I would feel much more comfortable knowing how everything is being laid out.
Alex.

X-plore will give you a directory tree layout, there is a free version to try out first. I'm not sure it's exactly what your looking for but it is worth a look. There are literally thousands of file managers. I used to use X-plore on my Symbian phones (seemingly ages ago) it was excellent. Here it is :

Thank You!
That maybe just, what I'm looking for.

Anyone, know of any WIKI's on the subject?

BTW, will I have to exercise Caution with this app? I've not messed with the phone and really don't want to find things out the hard way!

When everything is new and you lack experience, I tend to era on the side of caution. On that note, I believe I've Backed the Phone up, but as I stated not sure of myself with it as of yet.

Learning curve at the moment seems to be steep, and I want to limit my exposure to the right App's.

I'm attempting to limit the amount of tracking, that seems to be extremely wide spread, in almost all app's.

Call Me old fashioned, but privacy means allot to me, and should be mine to give, if I choose too! Everyone from your ISP, App Developers, Advertiser, TV, to the Government, have a sense of entitlement, about who you are, what you think, how much you earn, what you like, where you buy, and how best they can separate you from, your money!

I just want to protect myself and my family the best way I can, in the world we all have to live in today!

All Constructive criticisms welcome and respected!

Alex.

If your not rooted the most you could possibly do is mess up any apps you have installed. Rooted users can seriously mess things up. You won't have "write" permissions without root to do any serious damage.
