How can I export one personal space from confluence server and import into Confluence Cloud?

I have a few personal space remaining on our Confluence server I tried to export into PDF or Word and import into the Cloud but it fails.  


Is there a work around without having to use the migration assistant?  


The migration assistance will not help as the users of the spaces are no longer with the company and are not a user in the cloud.


I just need the space content.

Hi @Hines Trulock

You should try exporting to xml and then importing.  Link:

Just note that if you have some plugins in your server and not in cloud some information may be lost.

Thanks @Fabian Lim I just did that and exported as XML and downloaded the zip file.  However, I still got an error during the import.  It states the space already exist but I can't find it.  

@Fabian Lim I figured it out.  Actually all the personal spaces were imported into the Cloud but were archived and hidden.  I was able to find them.  Thanks for your help,.
