Only after having done all of that I noticed that I had lost all my folders and smart folders as well, I however, don't know where in the process they got lost.
Do you mean albums and smart albums? There are no smart folders in Aperture.
If it is smart albums you are asking about - albums now have their own section in the Library inspector pane. This section can be hidden. Have you checked, if you see an "ALBUMS" headline in the Library, with nothing below? Then hover your mouse to the right of this caption - this should reveal a "Show" button. press it.
Does this bring the albums back? Other secctions may be hidden as well, your projects for example.
If that is not the problem post back with more information on your Aperture library - its location, if referenced or managed, does it contain iPhoto projects, anything else you might consider useful.

Indeed, I mean albums and not folders. And I do see the Album section, but there is not much.
All smart albums I have created under projects are gone, so are the albums. The photos seems to all be there.
I only use aperture and all photos are managed. The library is about 90 Gb including some videos.

Just to be sure - have you checked the search field in the Library inspector, if it is cleared? If the search field is not empty, many of your albums and projects may be hidden, even if you see all images in the photos view.
