Where are the Quick Access Toolbar (QAT) settings for MS Office 2010 & 2013 stored?

Recently my Desktop PC crashed and because the hardware components were quite old, we decided to build a new system. I upgraded to a new 2 TB main drive which is now Drive C. The previous main (1TB) drive is fine so I still have access to it as Drive D.

For my MS Office apps (Excel & Word), I still use Office 2010 with the exception of OneNote for which I use 2013. I have reinstalled all of the apps but unfortunately, I do not have a backup copy of the QATs, but if I remember correctly, they each are in a simple file somewhere.
