When export a sandbox, unzip it and make some changes, then zip the folder again and try to re-import, it fails with the following pop-up error on OIM console: 

Import Sandbox Failed

Please select sandbox archive to import.
If the sandbox archive contains sandbox with the same name existing sandbox will be overwritten.
