can you recover an unsaved photoshop doc in creative cloud

Simply, you need to go to this directory

C:\Users\***\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC 2015\AutoRecover


where the Auto Recover folder in present.
The  App Data folder by default is hidden and therefore you need to change the folder settings for this purpose. You will find the last used file in the Auto recover folder in .psb format, which you can open up to get back to that particular unsaved file.

Am I doing something wrong, or why don't I see the 'Autorecover' option?

As the AppData directory is hidden by default on Windows, the following script should open up the required folder (which may or may not have any contents). This script is cross-platform and will work on both Mac and Win:

 

 

/* Open Photoshop Auto Recovery Folder - Universal */

#target photoshop

app.bringToFront();

openAutoRecoverDir();

function openAutoRecoverDir() {
    var os = $.os.toLowerCase().indexOf('mac') >= 0 ? "MAC" : "WINDOWS";
    if (os === 'MAC') {
        // alert("It's a Mac!");

        autoRecoverMac();

        function autoRecoverMac() {
            var appPath = app.path.fsName.replace(/^\/.+\//, '');
            var autoRecoverDirMac = '~/Library/Application Support/Adobe/' + appPath + '/AutoRecover';
            var autoRecoverDirMacOpen = Folder(autoRecoverDirMac);
            autoRecoverDirMacOpen.execute();
        }

    } else {
        // alert("It's Windows!");

        autoRecoverWin();

        function autoRecoverWin() {
            var appPath = app.path.fsName.replace(/^.+\\/, '');
            var autoRecoverDirWin = '~/appData/Roaming/Adobe/' + appPath + '/AutoRecover';
            var autoRecoverDirWinOpen = Folder(autoRecoverDirWin);
            autoRecoverDirWinOpen.execute();
        }

    }
}

It looks like you are accessing the wrong Library folder. Underneath the first column of your pic is the Users folder. Click into that and then follow the same path: User > Library > Application Support > Adobe > Adobe Photoshop 20XX > AutoRecover

Is it possible to recover a photo that you editted through the open button? For example, if you were to open a photo in photoshop, draw something on it, and accidentally clicked do not save when you closed it, would it appear in the Auto Recover file?

Unfortunately, no. "Do not Save" means exactly that. What you did is properly exited the program.

 

Autorecover is for when Photoshop crashes, and did not give you a chance to save or not.

 

You may want to save a copy every 5/10/15 minutes to a backup folder or if on a Mac, use Time Machine.
