Snapshot files

I’m trying to run the standard galaxy test on 16 cores. When I get data the snapshot files are 1.7 mb and the restart files are 11 mb. When I try to use gsplash to visualize the results it tells me that no particle data has been found. What am I doing wrong?
Here is my parameter file
