The most likely cause for a failed snapshot is that there is insufficient disc space to create the snapshot. You can go into Tools - Wizards - Advanced Open File Wizard and check the settings on the individual server.

Another thought is that you may have selected the Advanced Open File Option, but don't have a license for it...
