Question: iPad Screen Is Totalled, Trying to Back-up

I'm trying to back up my destroyed iPad. The screen is non-functional. I am trying to back-up the data, but the "Do you want to allow this computer to access information on this iPad?" message keeps popping up and obviously I cannot click the "Allow" button. How can I bypass this issue?

If the flash memory drive of the iPad wasn't damaged, the data on the flash drive should remain.

If the only thing that is destroyed is the screen, Apple has a screen repair/replacement program.

As long as nothing else is damaged or needs repair, your data has a chance of being retained/saved.

The time to attempt a backup, though, has passed.

You should have been regularly (like once a week, one every two weeks, once a month) backing up iDevices to iCloud and/or iTunes on a computer.

Your data, now, is in the hands of fate.
