Passwords gone upon startup - Login Data file still has all entries, but browser does not show it

I need help please. This morning all my passwords are gone.
I looked at the “Login Data” file c:\Users\USER\AppData\Local\BraveSoftware\Brave-Browser\User Data\Default. File is encrypted, but can see all the different websites with usernames there. Any idea how to recover or make brave actually read that file!
