Issues with initiating project

I just got started with this and whenever I create a new project in WSL2, for some reason PIO makes the path to the project with a backwards slash. What I mean by this is if I enter ESP32HelloWorld as my project name, PIO creates a directory like this: /home/squirrelcoding/PlatformIO/Projects\ESP32HelloWorld/…. Normally I wouldn’t mind but this is causing build issues in my projects. How can I fix this?
