Using the multi-wavelength data from AIA/SDO, we report a failed filament eruption, which was associated with an X1.9 flare, but without any distinct CME, coronal dimming or EUV wave. Some magnetic arches above the filament was observed distinctly in EUV channels, especially in 94 Å and 131 Å, before and during the filament eruption. Our results show that the overlying arcades expanded along with the ascent of the filament at first until they reached a projected height of about 49 Mm above the Suns surface, where they stopped. The following filament material was observed to be confined by the stopped EUV arches and not to escape from the Sun. These results support that the overlying arcades play an important role in preventing the filament to erupt outward successfully.
