10.6.8 server with USB ioSafe hard drive for client backups.  I am reinstalling the operating system on one 10.8 client.  Everything goes fine until I start the time machine restore.  Once it starts restoring, it gets to 18 or 19 minutes remaining and hangs there.  Looking at the mounted backup volume (either via Finder or via ls) on the server and it appears completely blank!  No files or directories on it at all.


The drive cannot be unmounted for repair.  However, rebooting the server and remounting the hard drive causes the files to reappear.  Disk Utility repair reports the drive is okay.


My question: is the hard drive failing or is this some weird operating system problem?
