Topic: [closed] Protect me from my own stupidity
Allow me to use a sudo-esque protection scheme in which I can opt to (semi-permanently) flag certain drives and/or partitions. Once flagged prompt me with, "This is your system drive!" or "This is your data drive!" or "This is your Windows partition!" and require me to enter some sort of passphrase/confirmation text if I try to delete a partition (or do something similarly stupid).
Let me state, emphatically, that this was MY BAD, and I take 100% responsibility for my own idiotic mistake. But we all have those moments - maybe caused by insomnia or pain Meds for a toothache or maybe we get distracted by our hot girlfriends... but this seems like a reasonably simple way to protect us from our own stupidity when we have a temporary brain lapse. Most importantly, I think the potential for catastrophic data loss easily justifies the need for such a feature.
