I got everything back up and running, after having to re-install Win8, but now my 3 TB HHD isn't showing up in disk management or anywhere. I feel it running. Any help?

Boot into your BIOS and make sure it's visible there in the storage section. If not, check/replace SATA cables.

^^ Seconded.
Try alternative SATA leads and ports, if it doesn't show up in the BIOS, plug it in outside of the HDD rack/case (just enough away to hear effectively) and listen to it onstartup, see if you can hear it spin up or for any clicking/clunking of the drive.

Had this issue a lot. Just switch SATA ports and boot Linux with the "Try" option. That'll fix it not showing up.

I switched it to another SATA port, and it showed up, but then "Explorer stopped responding. I restarted andthen it wasn't there again. I hear and feel it running, it's only a couple months old.........
UPDATE 10 minutes later I just cleared the CMOS, and now it's back.
Update 20 minutes: I see all of my folders, but when I open them, it says' it's empty

sounds to me like the partition may be corrupted or worse, it may be a failing drive, have you run a check-disk on it yet? or any diagnostics like seatools? do you hear clicking/clunking? is the drive unusually hot (+50 Celsius)?

What was the cause of the system crash that required a reload?

could be file system corruption on that disk, have you run a "chkdsk /f"

open command prompt (start button then CMD)

type in chkdsk /f driveletter: [for instance D: for a secondary drive]

it should attempt to repair the file system
