Scalpel.exe error on Windows 10 VM: unable to open image file

I am new to forensics software and was playing around with Scalpel.

I ran the following command in my command line in Windows 10 Virtual Machine (in Virtual Box):

Scalpel.exe unknownChunk

And received the error:

Scalpel was unable to open image file: unknownChunk.........No such file or directory

This was not the case when I ran the same command in my local machine (which is a Windows 11). Scalpel successfully file carved as intended and retrieved the necessary files.

Is the error something related to the virtual machine? or does it relate to my commands?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
