    They're not stored as files, they are stored inside the SQL, as jonallport states.
    You can retrieve them via the web interface or soap calls, but not from the filesystem.

    ... actually files in Briefcase are being stored the same way like E-Mail Messages:

    Metadata like Filename, Size etc. is being stored in the MySQL Database. To be precise in the "mail_item" table of each mboxgroup# Database. The table columns "sender" and "subject" contain the filename in cleartext.

    The file itself is being stored like all other E-Mails somewhere in one of the message store directories.

    Depending on HSM and Message store settings it may be compressed or hard-linked as well. So it isn't possible to retrieve a file stored in a Briefcase by just finding it somewhere on your disk. If you really want to know in which file on the disk a briefcase document is being stored there's a great Wiki article by AJ Cody explaining the details: Ajcody-Mysql-Topics - Zimbra :: Wiki

    I would recommend to use the REST API: ZCS 6.0:Zimbra REST API Reference:Get Briefcase - Zimbra :: Wiki

    To download your entire Briefcase as single ZIP file you can use your Browser or a command line utility like wget or curl: http://localhost:7070/home/john.doe/Briefcase?fmt=zip
