I did call the Media Descriptor Byte but I never would use scandisk to fix anything other thing then the directories or folders & files. I have used Norton Utitilies or Disk Doctor to do what you are doing, long time ago now. Now when scandisk gets done the FATs may have error's that can only be fixed by hand, a slow & painful tracing of files by hand if you had Norton's Utitilies. As soon as you boot into windows you will write to clusters you may need if the FAT has errors.
Your MDB should never been touched so when you done with scandisk you should also run SD surface test, for this test I would use Spinrite 5.0 which is better the SD ST & Nortons. I would be scared if that was my drive something caused the error & HD problem, virus I wonder if the day your HD broke if any virus was tuned for that day ? & thats all it takes is is a one byte change to mess you up like that or HD & or a IDE error coming out of nowhere to wipe you out like that.
very scary ha
