What would a cause a full XML export of a personal space to have no attachments?

I am trying to back up my personal space (using space tools Full XML format ) on a Confluence 7.9.3 instance. When I do this, it takes about 2 seconds and then creates an export with zero attachments. If I am in space tools, I see no attachments, but I have content that is showing in the personal space.  I seem to have the appropriate levels of permission, and if you look at the space, you see subordinate files in the space...  

I am not a full time Confluence admin, but am a long time Linux System administrator.

@David Ritchie Welcome to the community.  2 seconds seems short and I am wondering if the space is really small or if the export is erroring out.  Is the export creating a Zip file.  In the zip file there should be a properties file, an xml file and an attachments folder.  

it is only producing the attachments folder but no content. It is showing no error. It does produce a entities.xml and file that have content.

@David Ritchie - Can you take a look at the logs and see if there are any errors?
