Hello, could you please elaborate on what kind of RDM (virtual or physical) does this VM have and what type of restore are you trying to perform for it? Thanks.

Also I'm a bit confused why we're talking about snapshots here, since there cannot be present in the backup file and at the configuration of the restored VM. Does the restore process start for this VM or you see this error message right at the beginning?

Also, if this is a pRDM disk, you can try to exclude it, checking "Remove Exluded disk from VM configuration", and try perform restore operation. With corresponding option enabled the restore wizard shouldn't even try to restore the said disk. Thanks.
