in the scandisk interface, you will have no cursor, you will have to respond with keystrokes. nswer yes to let scand disk run, if it finds a problem, it will prompt you as to what to do, normally you can choose delete as the option (using the "L" key), but if you want you can follow the propmts for the undo which backs up the system files to sa flopy if you want.

If you are running scandisk from windows, you need to make sure that your options are set up right, specifically, that the "Fix errors automatically" is checked. And if you drive is partitioned, make sure you check each one or the option of all drives.
