In a case the previous answer didn't help and the answer is still not found I would love to offer some help. It is said that this composing doesn't "sound" Bach and so it is considered that it was written by someone else. A strong argument is that someone else wrote some parts of it and Bach himself wrote the other. On this toccata which he never called a toccata there are so many strange changes from his style. Perhaps something happen on 1708 but the best I can do is this. Bach never autographed this work. He signed each of his manuscripts with a marking SDG meaning Soli Deo Gloria or Alone to God the Glory. Oh and this composing was later used in Fantasia!
