Migrate Windows 7 autocorrect files from prior instalaltion

How can I migrate the Windows 7 autocorrect files from a prior installation to a new system drive? I have a huge number of entries (I am a keyboard dyslexic - thanks ADD!) and I need to have Windows 7 (and Office 2010 in particular) actually autocorrect them using the list on the old system. I have found lots of references to MSO1033 acl files searching online but a search for these files on both system drives seems to bring up default (39k) files that seem to be identical identical copies on both drives (I am using the old system drive as a storage drive on the new box).

Hi,

Are you searching hidden files & folders for the ACL files?

The ACL file(s) should be in: C:\Users\[User]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Office

I am searching all files on all drives. I guess I need to know which file to copy to the new drive and which directory to copy it from and to, like I said there are numerous files that search finds.
