Under Server Management - Advanced - xxx(Exchange) - Servers - First Storage Group - Right click - Properties you can find the path
C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\mdbdata for example.

You can also use the ntbackup to make a backup.

There are four files, priv1.edb, priv1.stm, pub1.edb and pub1.stm (for the Private and Public mailbox stores).  However, if you want to be able to easily backup your mailboxes so that you can import them back, use EXMerge.
