    Hello, I was doing a full backup of just some files on one of my other servers to mine passive FTP transfer, via cPanel. I changed my password earlier and forgot that I had so it completed the backup, I have an email saying it couldn't log in. What happen's to the backup when this happen's, disappears?

    Should have been left in the root of the account. cPanel BU creates a temp directory while creating the backup, you can login to FTP and see it as the BU is running. Once it completes the BU, it packs that directory to a tar.gz like this;
    backup-1.25.2005_12-16-57_yurnamehere.tar.gz
    And then trys to move it. If it can't, it stops there and leaves it.

    AFAIK ;)
