I was installing some game dev tools and needed to fix some permissions manually. I screwed up and I updated the permissions for EVERY file on the drive to have my user as the owner. As there are files that should only be owned by the system, I got the blue screen and thought I lost everything and was going to have to restore from a backup. Luckily it was an easy fix once I booted into recovery mode and was able to fix the perms.
