If you did not save you action set into a *.atn file they only in your Photoshop preferences folder in file "Actions Palette.psp" You should save action sets you create.

They are stored in the default action set file and preferences if you haven't explicitly created a new set for them/ saved them to disk. Check the relevant Adobe sub-folders in your user home directory.

If you use windows you can use this script to make backup versions of your install photoshop versions user preferences.  The script will not work on a mac. "BackupPhotoshopPreferences.jsx"

 

var makeFolder =  new Folder('~/Desktop/PsPreferences');
makeFolder.create(); // make sure the folder 
var makeFolder = new Folder(makeFolder + "/" + app.version);					
makeFolder.create(); // make sure the folder 
var now = timeStamp();
var makeFolder = new Folder(makeFolder + "/" + now );					
makeFolder.create(); // make sure the folder 

var Preferences =  new Folder(app.preferencesFolder);

var current = convertPath(Preferences);
var backup = convertPath(makeFolder);
//alert('Copy "' + current + '" "'  + backup + '"'); 
var batch_file = new File(Folder.temp + "/CpyPsPref.bat");
batch_file.open("w");
batch_file.write('Copy "' + current + '" "'  + backup + '"'); 
batch_file.close;
batch_file.execute();
alert("PS " + app.version + " Preferences " + now);

function  convertPath(location) {
	str = String(location);
	if (str.indexOf("~") != -1 ) str = str.substr(str.indexOf("~") + 1 ,);
	while (str.indexOf("%20") != -1 ) {	
		before = str.substr(0, str.indexOf("%20")) + " ";
		after = str.substr(str.indexOf("%20") + 3 ,);
		str = before + after;
	}
 	var path = "c:\\Users\\" +$.getenv("username");
	while (str.indexOf("/") != -1 ) {	
		path = path + str.substr(0, str.indexOf("/")) + "\\";
		str = str.substr(str.indexOf("/") + 1 ,);
	}
	return path + str;
}

function timeStamp(){

	// Get the time and format it
	var digital = new Date();
	var hours = digital.getHours();
	var minutes = digital.getMinutes();
	var seconds = digital.getSeconds();
	var amOrPm = "AM";
	if (hours > 11) amOrPm = "PM";
	if (hours > 12) hours = hours - 12;
	if (hours == 0) hours = 12;
	if (minutes <= 9) minutes = "0" + minutes;
	if (seconds <= 9) seconds = "0" + seconds;

	// Get the date and format it
	var date = new Date();
	var d  = date.getDate();
	var day = (d < 10) ? '0' + d : d;
	var m = date.getMonth() + 1;
	var month = (m < 10) ? '0' + m : m;
	var yy = date.getYear();
	var year = (yy < 1000) ? yy + 1900 : yy;
	
	// create a variable with the fully formatted the time and date
	// todaysDate = hours + ":" + minutes + ":" + seconds + " " + amOrPm + " - " + day + "/" + month + "/" + year;
	// todaysDate = hours + ":" + minutes + ":" + seconds + " " + amOrPm + " - " + month + "/" + day + "/" + year;

	MonthNames = new Array("January","February","March","April","May","June","July","August","September","October","November","December");

	todaysDate = hours + "-" + minutes + "-" + seconds + " " + amOrPm + " " + MonthNames[date.getMonth()] + " " + date.getDate() + ", " + year;

        return todaysDate;
}
