As far as I can tell, there's no filesystem on that drive. I see some text where the boot code would normally be, and I see evidence of a partition table.
Note what "file -s" is telling you: A boot sector at an offset of B8 hex. That also says "no filesystem" but does not exactly match what I am seeing--ie I see a partition table ending where it is supposed to--which would not happen if the boot sector started with that offset.
I don't know what is on that drive, but it does not appear to have a file system. I think the next step may be photorec or testdisk.
If you like to tinker, do this:
dd if=/dev/sdc bs=512 | hexdump -C | more
keep hitting the space bar and look for something that you recognize.....(hexdump -C gives you both hex and ascii display)
