Thanks! --- After installing "gnome-disk-utility" on Kubuntu, I was able to learn that my hard disks are INDEED healthy.

Thanks for the response --- I'm running Kubuntu not Ubuntu, but if you can give me the official name of the software you're thinking of, I can try it and report back.

Well after running smartctl from the command line, the software told me that SMART was available AND turned on. ---- smartctl also reported no errors... As I asked below, is there any other way to check this? Or does this mean all is well?

Hmm interesting...When running smartctl from the command line, I received "No Errors Logged" ---- So it would appear that your theory was correct and the GUI was the problem... Is there any other way to check this?
