Is there any way that I can recover my files? I still have my 60 gb of photos and videos in my storage that are encrypted.

Note: I was using TWRP before and after entering TWRP, it was asking for my pin so I can decrypt the files and dirty flash updated MIUI EU roms. I don't want to lose my files. Can anyone help me?

There is a TWRP version that can encrypt/decrypt for android 10 and for your phone.
I have seen exchanged msg on this subject some days ago.
A search will help you.
I don't own this model phone.

Search for twrp from wzsx150 for the mix 3.

Any solution to that?

I had to clean data and start again to point 0: clean install.
Anyone knows why I found my files and folders encrypted after manually updating the rom?

I had to format phone like you did.
Really hope that this won't happen again in the future..

this is why I remove my password every time I'm about to update. I have experienced this problem once (end up forced to wipe everything) and l won't be put in the same situation.

Password for what?
You mean phone pin unlocking password or what?
I did not have any password on my Mi 9T and after latest ROM update I found folders and file encrypted..

+1. Remove all the security prior to updating and all the encryption/formatting nightmares disappear.

For anyone that has this issue in TWRP, even in roms other than miui, you can still use adb push command from pc to transfer files to your phone :

adb push "nameoffile" /sdcard

(place the file in your adb folder) I was able to root a phone that had this issue using this technique.

Si no lo ha solucionado puedes escribirme a mi WhatsApp + 57 319 674 9839 y te paso el archivo para que pueda instalar la ROM y una vez instalada instales el archivo para quitar el cifrado de los archivos y puedas iniciar el sistema operativo y no pierda los datos Mi aplicación y nada simplemente como una actualización
