Without details, this is good for vetting but not for anything else. Certainly not anything to use to offer any help.

As Bob says we would need information on what the popup was as to why it could possibly cause the loss of work.

However, it does suggest you need to be doing regular backups so you don't lose important work.  Even for other occurrences when data could be lost, loss of power, crash, etc.

You are still just vetting. Still not enough information to offer any help.
Maybe you should Contact Support https://support.avast.com/contact

I like you am an Avast user. That's why I gave you a link to contact Avast customer support.
Explaining your problem to them, may result in a solution. Directing your anger at me isn't going to solve anything.
Have a nice day. :)
