If the partition is listed as raw, no need to search for a lost partition.
Run TestDisk, select the physicaldisk, EFI GPT, Advanced, select the partition, Boot,
If available, choose BackupBS and confirm
Otherwise, choose RebuildBS, List. If you can see your files, choose Write and confirm.
Quit and restart your computer.
Dear @cgrenier
I have a 3T HD WD
I do RebuildBS (9 hours working) because no BackupBS option available.

Result:
Boot sector
Status: OK
Backup boot sector
Status: OK
Sectors are identical
A valid NTFS Boot sector must be present in order to access any data, even if the partition is not bootable
  • Can`t Open filesystem. Filesystem seems damaged.

    ¿What can I do?
    I did not format HD, i did not write on disk since o detect stops working.
    ¿can you help me on next step?

Run "cmd" (right click run as administrator", "chkdsk /f d:" (replace d: by the correct drive letter). What is the output ?
If it doesn't work, you can always try PhotoRec to recover your data, unfortunately it will not recover the original filanmes.
