    Currently SmartGuard's automatic snapshot process initiates on its own schedule which is not under user control. Sometimes, when the user is in the middle of deleting one or more snapshots via the "Manage Snapshots" dialog, the SmartGuard process will initiate.

    If the snapshot currently being deleted takes longer than the 60 second delay before the SmartGuard snapshot starts, then the SmartGuard snapshot will fail and will not initiate again until the next SmartGuard interval completes (this can be days later, depending on settings).

    Recommendation: prior to taking its snapshot, the SmartGuard system should check if any snapshots are in the process of being deleted, and if so pause until those snapshots complete.
