Mount Shared Repository for Snapshot


I want to use the Snapshot module in order to make backups of my one and only index.

I created manually the folder in this location C:\ProgramData\Elastic\Elasticsearch\Snapshots, and I gave the written and read rights to it.
I also added the path.repo, in the elasticsearch.yml :
path.repo: C:\ProgramData\Elastic\Elasticsearch\Snapshots

and when I tried to select this shared folder on Kibana, I have the following error:

[Snapshots] location [C:\ProgramData\Elastic\Elasticsearch\Snapshots] doesn't match any of the locations specified by path.repo because this setting is empty

Can anyone help me please ?

After adding path.repo in elasticsearch.yml have you restarted elasticsearch?

Thank you for your answer.
Yes, I have restarted elasticsearch, but it was still not possible to reach the repository.
