The snapshot and restore feature is designed for taking backups, and the repository-gcs plugin is designed for doing so to GCS.

Hi David,
A Sub question to this.
Is the repository-gcs-plugin also valid for elastic search 1.4.2 .
I followed the plugin link and got stumbled upon the keystore, which i couldn't find in my version.

1.4.2 is over four years old and has all sorts of issues addressed in more recent versions. You really should upgrade. It looks like it had some repository plugins but not a GCS one.

Thanks David, the plugin worked just fine with recent versions.
