  • All the InfoPath data is stored in an XML file within the Forms Library. This means that all the data for the form (field names, values, etc) is stored in the same XML, both fields that are visible only within the form, as well as those that are "promoted" ("shared" or "exposed") to SharePoint. Certain of those InfoPath fields (as you decide) are exposed to SharePoint and will appear as fields in the Forms List.

  • As Ashish said, the data is stored in an XML file.

    You can download InfoPath file as XML from Form Library and open by using text editor to check stored values in the form.
