Files created in CS5 saved to psd & closed with action to external drive. I cannot find the files. Did ps close files without saving?

i just edited about 20 images (3 hours of work) in photoshop CS5 and with an action saved them as a psd file to an external drive then closed the file as part of the action. I just noticed now I cannot find any of the files I worked on in the file the action was supposed to save it to. I even downloaded EasyFind to try and find them. They seem to be nowhere. Would photoshop have closed my files without saving them?

I have made actions in the past which have saved all the files with the same filename as the first file and hence only the last image is in a folder with the name of the first image. Make a copy of a file and give it a name like 'aaaaa.tif'.

Run the action on this file and then search for it. It should appear in the folder where your other image(s) are.
