Hopefully this will resolve soon enough in a bugfix release. Just keep an eye on this thread or for any updates through your WPMU DEV Dashboard or Hub, and we'll keep you posted as soon as we've got any update.
So, any progress?
Hi Predrag Dubajic -
I just ran an sFTP test, changing the destination directory with permissions of 777.
drwxrwxrwx 3 jim jim 4096 Aug 3 22:47 snapshots
I still get the same results:
2016-08-04 12:40:54: Login success.
2016-08-04 12:40:54: Home/Root: /home/jim/
2016-08-04 12:40:54: Changing Directory: /home/jim/snapshots
2016-08-04 12:40:54: sFTP: Failed to MKDIR: /home/jim/snapshots
2016-08-04 12:40:54: PUT file success: snapshot-1470328595-160804-163635-b33f3426.zip
It connects fine, finds the directory, then attempts to do a mkdir which fails (already there), and then PUTs the file in the user's root. I notice that the difference between the simple FTP and sFTP is that it appears in both the find the directory, but the sFTP insists upon doing a mkdir.
Also, using the mounted external drive (/mnt...), the only subdirectory permission available is 755 (limits to the proper user only for write).
Hope this helps!
PS: All the snapshots I have configured so far using simple FTP work perfectly.

Works 100% with ftp.

So, ftp works as a stopgap measure. Let me know if there is further info I can supply to the developer team to hasten an SFTP solution. :grinning:
Additional - I tried to add an extra node to the directory to mark which of the 30+ WP sites I maintain. That did not work as well (I had created before running the snapshot.
I also tried to send it to the actual Linux box on the /home drive and it again dropped to file in the user root directory.
