AutoSPInstaller didn't use specified Index location. "New index location must be empty".

    I specified I:\ in AutoSPInstallerInput.xml:

    <CustomIndexLocation>I:\</CustomIndexLocation>

    but it resulted in an error containing:

    New index location must be empty.

    I checked the current location:

    $ssa = Get-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication $ssa.AdminComponent.IndexLocation

    which returned:

    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office Servers\16.0\Data\Office Server\Applications

    Just in case, this can not be set to the root of a drive such as I:\, I am going to retry it with I:\search

    Does anyone have any ideas?
