Yes, the media library creates content items that point to the physical media files, so you will have to backup both the database as well as the physical files.
If you want to backup only the media content items and their physical files, you can export the media items using the Import Export feature as one part of the backup, and backup the physical files manually. When you want to import the media, simply copy in the physical files using Window Explorer and import the XML file that was generated during export.
