After updating my Hero 8 last night to firmware version HD8.01.01.60.00, Quik for Windows no longer sees any of my new videos created since the firmware update.
It can still see the older files from a day ago (or older). However, it can no longer see the new ones made since last night's FW update.
Camera: Hero 8 black (HD8.01.01.60.00)
Computer: Microsoft Surface
OS: Windows 10 version 1903
Quik version 126.96.36.1995
The software side of GoPro has been frustrating, to be honest. The gauges don't work on the desktop, the android app is slow + crashes a lot, transferring files from camera to phone can only be done via wireless, transferring anything above 1080p is a pain, UX is terrible, etc.

Can you please check all photos and videos on the app?
Sometimes they the time and date is incorrect and they are being routed on the middle part or bottom part of the imported files.

Btw, my phone cannot see any GPS data now ever since the update.
Another issue is that the camera's light doesn't turn off even after a full charge. After which, the GoPro itself won't turn on. You would have to take the battery out, wait 5 seconds, and put it back in just to be able to start the camera up.
This firmware upgrade has been a farce. No GPS, desktop app is crap, phone app no longer works right, and the camera itself is having hardware issues.
GoPro should have done extensive testing before even sending any firmware updates out. If they're not careful, upstarts like DJI and SJCam will catch up, like how Samsung and LG took out the marketshare from the likes of Sony.
