HKCU\Software\Classes (file associations) are in a separate file:
%localappdata% is an environment variable in w8 and maybe earlier,
and corresponds to the registry value
\Explorer\User Shell Folders\Local AppData
and may have the value
%userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data
for the system hive
for the software hive
and other extension-less files in the same directory
