Here some of the failures that testdisk shows:

Cannot represent filename in current locale.
Can't create file /mnt/sdc5/DATOS/DOCUMENTOS/MANUALES/SICK/Fotocélulas/W_34_e.pdf: Invalid or incomplete multibyte or wide character
ERROR: Couldn't set the file's date and time for /mnt/sdc5/DATOS/DOCUMENTOS/MANUALES/SICK/Fotocélulas

But there are a lot of failures "Invalid or incomplete multibyte or wide character"

when i search partitions i found my two partitions and i can navigate and see all the files, but when i try to recover it, then appear these failures.

Is possible recover the files or this software cant?

wouldn't be easier to repair your partition table with testdisk and then to mount file-system to access data ?
Why weren't you able to repair your partition table ?
