What is the value of your sakai.home variable?

It's possible you need a slash between it and the directory so that the files are written out correctly, although it did create the directories...
e.g. bodyPath at org.sakaiproject.content.api.ContentHostingService = ${sakai.home}/content

Are the permissions set correctly so that the Tomcat user can write there?

Also, what is the URL of the files that give a 404 (you can omit the server name).

The database is getting larger( 1.5 GB) so for  and I found out that it would be better to store content into the file server rather than blobs in the database.  There is plenty(400 GB)  of space on file server.  I followed the directions on the following page.

I checked the file folder and it was only 128K. Which I was expecting  to be atleast 300MB or more. I am attaching some file server screen shots may be help to see what is wrong.
