I've branched your post from an unrelated thread in Creative Cloud Desktop and moved it to the Photoshop forum for you.

 

What was the error message?

Were you saving your Actions Sets (folders) every time you made a change?

@jane-e already asked about saving Actions, but just to make sure:

Were unsaved Actions affected – did you create Actions without ever saving the atn-file to contain them?

@ashleyn26995277 – As has been mentioned, always save your action sets to .atn file. If you haven't done so, the only hope of recovering them is possibly from an earlier version if you have multiple versions installed or from a system backup. More here:
