Why does the sandbox refresh wizard only provide an option to create a sandbox?

Knowledge Article Number 000222054
Description The sandbox refresh wizard was changed to more accurately reflect what happens during a sandbox refresh.

A "refresh" does not add to or update an existing sandbox. The act of refreshing actually creates a new sandbox. At the time of activation, the old sandbox is moved into a Pending Delete status, and the new sandbox is activated.

The "create sandbox" action in the wizard is meant to make it clear that nothing is being added or updated to the original sandbox, but rather a new copy is being created in parallel which will entirely replace the original version.
