I use to be a game developer.

One time I corrupted the external hard drive by mistake. It ruined months of work that was unrecoverable.

This was a four person team project, we all failed the final.

The mistake was not backing it up. I also had dropped the hard drive which caused the corruption. Obviously this was a accident, and it was my personal drive. But I also was very bad about sharing the work in process, thinking I could wow people. This caused team mates not having a copy that was nearly as close.
