Yikes!!  Had a position  as a data manager in a University lab.
My predecessor had the brilliant idea to reformat the machine I was going to be using without building a backup of the project files I was going to be working on.
I had to reassemble the relevant data from partial archives and then manually go through all of the raw data to verify that I had a  complete file with all participants.  Not only that but after I reinstalled windows I picked up a nasty virus almost immediately due to serious stuff beaming around the university network.  It then took 2 days to get IT to come up and fix my box.
What a pain in the ass that whole week proved to be.
