its currently running but I don't have hope since it tells me to run recovery mode first since database isn't uptodate but I get an error in recovery mode that it can't find the last log file. I'm running it from the mdbdata folder. I see a bunch of log files there.

ok. I am not sure if this will work.. but try to run eseutil again in repair mode. then before you try and mount if run isinteg /fix.. if my memory serves me the mounting is an integrity issue.
