There is no way of changing this at present.  The only thing you can do is limit the amount of space avalable for the shadow copies.  You can tweak this setting from No Limit to some setting at equates to the size of your snapshot.

i.e.  Each snapshot is 50 MB, make your max size 500MB to keep only 10 copies.  You might need slightly more that 500Mb to store 10, but you get the idea.
