Where are outlook auto corrections stored?

hi all my work laptop recently had a catastrophic failure and i lost all of the data on my hard disk - nightmare!

i also lost all of the "auto correct" shortcuts that i have set up in outlook e.g. i use auto correct to complete words for me. i probably had a hundred set up. can anyone advise where these settings are stored, so that in future i can back up?

many thanks

I don't know which OS you have but he autocorrect entries are stored in an ACL or Auto Correct List file. On Windows 7 that file is stored in C:\Users\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Office.
