    Yes!

    The /home directory, the root of the domain is where the file should be stored.

    Telnet!

    Telnet into the account, go to the /home dir and type:

    find *.tar.*

    Should locate it for you.

    my managed server disable telnet actually though.
    I use SSH to log in and go to /home anf type

    find *.tar.*

    find: *.tar.*: No such file or directory

    is "find" also usable on telnet?

    I used "locate "to find where are files on SSH but meet these errors.

    "bash-2.05a$ locate backup-hi3b.com-9-10-2003.tar.gz
    warning: locate: could not open database: /var/lib/slocate/slocate.db:
    Permission denied
    warning: You need to run the 'updatedb' command (as root) to create the
    database.
    bash-2.05a$ updatedb
    fatal error: updatedb: You are not authorized to create a default slocate
    database!

    user backups like that are usually located in his/her home dir... so /home/user/
