Puzzled with TWRP not Showing Folders

I've been using TWRP for ages, and on every phone I root. I've been running my Pixel 2 XL stock rooted. Since installing the March update (wiped everything and installed official image from Google), my phone folders aren't showing up in TWRP. Using all of the file explorers, the usual folders like Download, DCIM, Pictures, etc. all show up. Is there a setting or something I'm missing in TWRP? Everything else in TWRP is working fine, including the use of OTG. I'm at a loss here. Anybody have an answer? Thanks!

So I left out one thing. Since installing the March update and reinstalling TWRP, at start-up of TWRP my password doesn't work. I think I remember seeing that somewhere recently in a thread with other folks. So what's going on is everything is remaining encrypted, right. That's why the folders all look like jibberish instead of the folder names I'm looking for?

Remove encryption and try again. No lock screen security no fingerprint security.

I believe the latest twrp fixes this issue as well
