    Curious question of you run a snapshot just for your plugins does it complete? Also I'm assuming you are running this manually since you provided the memory information. Running as a scheduled task generally has better luck since there is less overhead on the AJAX calls.

    Also, on the Snapshot > Settings page at the bottom there is an option to select the zip library used. Options are PclZip which is a library provided by WordPress. The other option is ZipArchive which is the native PHP version. Curious if you have better luck with switching. Normally from what I've seen the PclZip manages memory a little better. While the ZipArchive uses disk based cache for files.

    Let us know.

    - backing up ONLY the plugins, NOTHING else results: SUCCESS

    - running as a scheduled task is not useful to me right now. I merely wished to manually create a snapshot before running some updates.

    - switching to ZipArchive resulted: SUCCESS
