I recently had to download all the .swf file from our confluence site.
The solution online sent me to a page that showed the attachments and then I had to click someting to download it.
This gave me a direct link to every file I needed.
Below is the PostgreSQL query created to assist me in this task.
SELECT title, version, pageid, 'https://your-server-here/download/attachments/' || pageid || '/' || title || '?version=' || version as URL FROM content WHERE contenttype = 'ATTACHMENT' AND title like '%.swf' AND prevver IS NULL AND spaceid IS NOT NULL ORDER BY lastmoddate DESC
From here you could do all kinds of things like generate a CURL command and pull every file down.
For me I just emailed the URL column to myself and clicked each link.
