the important part of this is ....

"When using isolated storage, applications save data to a unique data compartment that is associated with some aspect of the code's identity, such as its Web site, publisher, or signature. The data compartment is an abstraction, not a specific storage location; it consists of one or more isolated storage files, called stores, which contain the actual directory locations where data is stored."

when usin g isolated storage there is no guarentee that the data will reside in a given place.

just making an (un)educated guess but depending on you scope settings
isoStore = IsolatedStorageFile.GetStore(IsolatedStorageScope.User | IsolatedStorageScope.Assembly, null, null);  
for isolated storage the actual files are stored in C:\Documents and Settings\<UserName>\Local Settings\Application Data\IsolatedStorage folder...

so for the service account that web app or service is running in would probably be
C:\Documents and Settings\serviceAccount\Local Settings\Application Data\IsolatedStorage folder...

or might be

C:\Documents and Settings\<machineName>\ASPNET\Local Settings\Application Data\IsolatedStorage folder...

Depends on what scope you put in and who is running the service.
isoStore = IsolatedStorageFile.GetStore(IsolatedStorageScope.User | IsolatedStorageScope.Assembly, null, null);  
it will get a store for the running user for this assembly... check out this article on isolation.
