I upgraded my test instance of Confluence from 5.5.4 to 5.7.4 and I don't see the Space tools on the lower left hand side. Is there a setting that enables this to appear?
To see the space tools on side-bar you have to do the following steps.
May be the space is using Documentation them in which you won't see Space Tools on side bar, rather you can access it on Browse menu on the navigator bar as a part of drop down list.
Please find this for similar issue posted earlier.
Hope this helps
