The error is seen on the HTML export page itself, when it is processing to backup:

There was an error in the export. Please check your log files. :java.io.FileNotFoundException: C:\dev\confluence\confluence-2.7-std\home\temp\export_02152008_123348\TONY\
Tony *Plus V3.html (The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect)


The page title contains a symbolic character such as an asterisk ( * ). 


Rename the page title by removing the asterisk or symbolic character.


Upgrade to Confluence 3.0 or later. This behavior was reported in CONF-10741 and was fixed in version 3.
