Recovery of exchange mailboxes in sbs 2011

We recently had a disaster with the Windows SBS 2011 server and had to reinstall the whole package. Fortunately we have been using SBS 2011 backup and storage on which we backed up to a separate drive and therefore have been able to recover user files e.t.c.

However, I can't find the exchange mailboxes or how to recover them. There's no option in the recovery wizard for directly retrieving them. Where do they reside?

    Did you get your EDB(exchange database) files from your backup.?

    normally it will be in D drive or your database drive:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\Mailbox
    search for *.edb files in the server.
