xsi-backup and snapshots

Hi, I'm having an issue with xsibackup not backing up snapshots. When I run it, everything seems to work, and it also makes a snapshot and backs up the .vmsd file, which seems like the logical thing to do. However, when I try restoring the VM from a snapshot or creating a new snapshot and then restoring it it fails, because xsibackup is not copying the actual .vmsn files.. I don't understand what the purpose of copying the .vmsd file and making a snapshot, if the actual snapshots are not being backed up.. Unless I'm getting confused about something, either way if someone could help me.
