I just installed 12.10, but can't find the Disk Utility.
Disk Utility show as installed.
I even uninstalled and reinstalled it, but still can't find. The best I can find is Disks, almost but no testing features.

Ctrl + Alt + T (open Terminal) then palimpsest command opens it. What happens when you try this? – Tom Brossman Dec 31 '12 at 8:13
@TomBrossman I'm using 12.10 and the command now is gnome-disks. – Eric Carvalho Dec 31 '12 at 12:55

@EricCarvalho You are correct, nice catch! I upvoted your answer. – Tom Brossman Dec 31 '12 at 16:17

The tool you're looking for is Disks (gnome-disks in terminal), indeed. Press the "two-cog" buttons and you'll find the Test/SMART and Benchmark options.

Click on Dash Home type Disk Utility you will find the Disk Utility Icon, select it, will show Storage Devices connected to your system. Select any drive and will show you options like Check Filesystem , Edit Partition etc.
