Yes, the behavior was if a backup failed in Snapshot mode at any point
during the sync - the backup would cease and not restart. However
since you added the retry part from Lazy mode all is well and I can
confirm it does in fact retry flawlessly.
Maybe a RetryOnFailure (or similar) option for those who do not wish
to automatically retry in case of failure/error, however I would
wonder if anyone would want that option as this is (IIRC) the default
behavior in Lazy mode ? but as for behavior of retries via
UpdateStoreInterval or similar is fine with me as long as the
resultant is it retries the failed session/sync :)
