Can the failure message be improved?
When VBoxManage.exe import failed with no disk space, the failure message is below:

E_INVALIDARG (0x80070057) - One or more arguments are invalid (extended info not available)

It occurs when disk space is not enough.
So, when no space, I think that output message should be include about disk space.

I ran the command on Windows 10 with Virtual Box 6.0.14.
F: drive has no space enough.
The details of outputs are followings:
