    I'm on OSX 10.8.5, Mac Pro.

    I have 4 drives in the machine, but i turned it on this morning and 1 of them isn't showing. I restarted a few times and it did show up sometimes, but i couldn't access it, i could see the folders on it, but they were all empty (they should have loads in them).
    The machine was very slow and stuttery, like getting the spinning wheel when it could see the drive.

    now it won't show at all in finder, or disk utility. I have booted in safe mode and it still doesn't show.

    Any help or advice would really be appreciated,

    Pull it out, place it in an external enclosure and hope you can get the data off it prior to replacement. It shows all the symptoms of a dying drive.
