Since 1.5, All of Accumulo files are stored in HDFS: RFiles and WALs.

Tables have the name you provide, but also maintain an internal unique 
ID to make operations like renaming easy. You can see this mapping via 
`tables -l` in the Accumulo shell.

Given the ID for a table, you should be able to find all rfiles for a 
table "/accumulo/tables/$id/**/*.rf". If you don't see any rfiles there, 
run a `compact -t $table -w` and then check HDFS again.
