    Im assuming when you run backups via WHM that it makes a .tar file somewhere on the server, and then ftp's it to the location of your ftp. Then removes the original tar from the server.

    Where is this tar file stored?

    Cpanel stopped mid backup, now we have a huge file somewhere on the server that we cant find.

    Go on, have a guess
    Your backups are stored and compressed within the directory that you specify in the WHM backup settings. So, any orphaned files will be in:

    /yourbackupdir/cpbackup/daily/someuserdir
