Confluence cloud to server data import issue

I am trying to import backup created in Confluence cloud to a local server installation of Confluence. Server version is 6.1.1 - fresh installation running on CentOS 7 linux. Import fails near the end with error stating cannot create temp file in attachments folder (with all the sub-folder tree there). I noticed attachments folder is empty - directory structure does not yet exist there. Permissions of attachments folder appear to be ok. Looks like restore process attempts to create a file in a folder that still does not exist. What am I missing here?

To answer my own question: after a bit more digging around - issue is server ran out of space while trying to expand the zip archive during the import process. It was not initially evident, because after process errored drive space usage was normal (I guess temporary expanded files got removed).

Re-running the process on a server with larger storage space was successful.
