v3.0 Beta 7 Snapshot Creation Failure

Just upgraded to v3.0 Beta 7 from a previously working Beta 6.

When attempting to start the backup, it fails with a dialog reading :-

"Your settings are improperly configured. Disk image "redacted" is not writeable or the path is invalid".

This happens with both an existing (Beta 6 created) disk image and with creating a new disk image. The path to the disk image is valid and is also writeable (according to Finder).
Possibly connected to this is an odd disk image name in the main window which reads :-

"Pressing "Copy Now" will use "Backup - All Files" to copy Macintosh HD to SDTargetVolume.QualifiedName using Smart Update"

This is running on a 2017 15" MacBook Pro running High Sierra 10.13.1.

Also, removing the Beta 7 install, plus cleaning out cache and preferences files (via AppZapper) and restoring the Beta 6 version now has this issue as well.

Help?

Update: After re-installing Beta 6 again, the backup now fails with the following log entry:

Update 2: After manually deleting/recreating Finder permissions on the removeable disk which (should) contain the disk image, the backup starts but fails during snapshot creation as per the log file above.
