After providing path.repo ES service won't start

I have downloaded and installed ES 6.4.2. For snapshot and restore I declared path.repo in the .yml file.
After this I start my service from windows service manager it won't start and giving error in log as:

java.lang.IllegalStateException: Unable to access 'path.repo' (\hq-msk-p-1\ES_Backups)
Caused by: java.nio.file.FileSystemException: \hq-msk-p-1\ES_Backups: Unable to determine if root directory exists

the path.repo confiduration is like (no spaces in start and end):

//path.repo: ["\\\\hq-msk-p-1\\ES_Backups"]

hq-msk-p-1 is the machine name on the same network.
