Does the .snap directory exist, and with the correct ownership and=20
permissions?

=46rom the man page:

"If the .snap directory does not exist in the root of the file system=20
being dumped, a warning will be issued and the dump will revert to the=20
standard behavior. This problem can be corrected by creating a .snap=20
directory in the root of the file system to be dumped; its owner should=20
be ``root'', its group should be ``operator'', and its mode should be=20
``0770''."
