That section just shows you all of the attachments in the space. It does not allow you to put attachments in as attachments are not related to the space directly but rather to the pages in the space. So, similar to an email the attachment is attached to a page. You can upload an attachment to a page by dragging and dropping it onto the page from your computer if you use Chrome, Firefox or IE11. IE10 and below you can go to the tools menu in the top right of the page and then to attachments. At the bottom of that screen is a form to upload an attachment to the page.
To link to an attachment highlight the text that you want to be the link. Then click the link icon in the editor toolbar. If the attachment is on the current page then select attachments on the left side of the insert link dialog box. If it is on another page select search in the insert link dialog box and search for it.
It's a little confusing, but when a page is not in edit mode, you can choose Tools > Attachments. This gives you a window for adding attachments to a page. After they are added, you can make links to them later. Of course, dragging-dropping or pasting on a page in edit mode adds an image to a page and also makes it an attachment.
