Just the other day a gentleman comes over to our desk with a rather large amount of papers stapled together. It seems that one of our divisional drives (almost 2 TB in size with about 14 million files and countless thousands of directories that are nested) was the victim of an unfortunate accident.

I know a guy who was in the department for 8 years, and they never really gave him the ability to change passwords for the users he served.

Users were locked out until an administrator could be reach on their vacation.
