    Thanks for your posting here.

    In Hyper-V Manager, the "Revert" option first tells the underlying API to hard turn off the VM, then it instructs the API to restore the snapshot.

    Based on my experience, there is no way to revert the snapshot. Snapshot is not a backup method.

    You really need some backup tool to handle this situation, and then using snapshots for testing configuration changes and updates.
