I am trying to extract all Attachments from a sandbox using Dataloader(salesforce provided inbuilt application) but I didn't find 'Attachments' object in object selection.

Whereas if I do the same thing using dataloader.io, I am getting 'Attachments' object and able to extract all attachments.

Is there any limitation with Salesforce Dataloader with Attachments extraction?

On the step 2, Select checkbox "Show all Salesforce objects" and you will see all salesforce object and also "Attachment"
