Can we give this another try?

Apparently entering '318' to the starting sector was not the correct fix. It created an additional sector, rather than repairing the original. Maybe I took the instructions wrong?

Can this copied HD be used for a second try, or do I need to re-copy the original?

Would a different TestDisk version be helpful? I'm using the 7.0 version on Manjaro. The branches from [Analyse] [Advanced] [Geometry] and [Options] seem to use "243061471 1707156878 1464095408-type" entries, not " 0 1 1 ". Is this a concern?

The reward is very early Bitcoin that I was mining on this system, and it will be divided between whoever shows how to rescue the filesystem and Mr. Grenier. No need to hang back if you know how to fix this! I have some important files on this disk that I'd like to have back.

The partition starting at sector 318 must be MS Data, not EFI System.
