Where to find snapshot?

I try to make a snapshot according following reference:

Created a local fs repository:
PUT /_snapshot/my_backup
"type": "fs",
"settings": {
"location": "/var/tmp/backup/"

Created a snapshot:
"indices": "connect"

Positive result:

But can't find a backup file in the particular folder.

Can someone help me?

Could you use a directory that isn't a system-wide temporary directory? With some installation methods, Elasticsearch treats such directories specially.

I moved the directory to /usr/elasticbackup and gave appropriate permissions. Now I can see the snapshot files.

Thanks for the hint and fast response David!
