Actions are not migrating

I am now using the newest version of PS and only half of my actions are showing.  When I try to migrate them from the older versions, it says there is nothing to migrate.  Currently I am using an older version so I can use my actions.  How do I move my actions over to the newest version if the migrate function is not working and some of the actions I do not have saved on this PC?

Hi

In the older version, select a set (folder) and save it using the panel menu. Repeat for each set (folder). In the new version, import/load the actions from the action panel menu. They will have a .atn extension.

Your unsaved actions should migrate in "Actions Palette.psp" If you choose to have your presets migrated during the install of Photoshop 2021.  Use menu Edit>Presets>Migrate Presets. See if the migrate then.

Migration requires actions to be saved in a specific folder, which is not the default save location (go figure).

This script may also be helpful, especially if you are on Windows:
