It would have gone nowhere, data is sent in packets with a message sent back from the receiving device, once a packet is successfully received to the sending device saying that the packet was received OK, send the next packet.

The usual reason for a fail is that data gets corrupted and the process fails. Part packets are just meaningless data and get deleted once the acknowledgement is not correctly received.
