"Reformatted digital" has been used to mean it has been reformatted into
digital from the original analog. "Digitized other analog" would mean that
it has been digitized from some other source than the original, such as a
microform or some other intermediate, like a photocopy.

In MARC terms, reformatted digital would be used to mean the same as value
"a" (File reproduced from original) and "digitized other analog" would
include both value "b" (file reproduced from microform) and value
"d" (File reproduced from an intermediate (not microform)) in Electronic
resources 007/11 (Antecedent/source).
