Location of Exchange 2010 database

I have had the exchange on an SBS 2003 server moved across to a New windows 2008 server running Exchange 2010. Both servers are running in the domain now - the SBS is being used for file sharing.

Whilst all the outlook clients are now connecting to Exchange 2010, how can I check the physical location of where the database resides ?

In the 2010 Exchange management console - it shows mailbox database and public folder database mounted on the new server, properties of mailbox database shows the new server hosting a copy of the database, but if I select client settings and browse default public folder database - it returns "public folder database" on newserver, and underneath lists "Public Folder Store" on oldserver ?  The date stamp on the priv1 and pub1 files in the old servers exchange folder is dated yesterday despite the mailboxes having been moved a month ago ?

Thank you

you can also open Exchange Management console -> org config -> mailbox -> database management and right click properties on the mailbox database you will see the path on the general tab

Thank you Akhater for your lightning response ! - it points to the new server. Just one thing - do I need to worry about why the database on the old server has a timestamp as recent as yesterday when in theory exchange is no longer running ?

no don't worry, the time stamp will change as long as the server is running, the system will still access it
