Your log file is almost not readable.
Would it be possible to use another word processor like wordpad to open it?
It makes it better readable.
Then you can copy and paste the content.

Thank you

Looks like that your partition table is right.
It contains your partition and label is displayed also.
Please check your file system through a boot sector diagnose.
Start TestDisk, confirm at create a log with enter and select your affected disk.
Confirm at partition table type "Intel" with enter also
Don't confirm at Analyse but Advanced.
Confirm at Boot.
Please upload a screen shot.
If you see the menu list, please check it and hit enter.
Do you see your files and folders or an error message?
If the menu "List" is not available, check "Rebuild BS" and hit Enter.
Rebuild your BS will be in progress.
Normally, it takes some minutes.

Thanks.

Would it be possible to upload a screen from TestDisk / Advanced / Boot?
I already asked for, to determine either your file system is damaged or boot sector is corrupt.
Did you already run "Rebuild BS"?
In any case it's recommended to copy/backup ypur data firtst.
If you list your files, at the bottom of the screen you'll see all the commands.
Marking that 2 dots and pressing enter, you'll get one directory up until you get to your disk selection.
Marking a folder and pressing the right arrow key on your keyboard, you can enter a folder.

After backing up your data, we can have a look to repair your boot sector or file system.
