I'm not entirely sure what you mean by "Disk Utility" but try this

Menu-Accessories-Disks   

or

Menu-System Tools-Disk Usage Analyser

Hope that helps

As Emegra says, it's now just called "Disks"  :o

What DE are you using ? it should be there in Cinnamon

Anyway assuming it's installed on your system you should be able to access it via the terminal 
Code: [Select]
gnome-disks

if it's not installed run
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install gnome-disk-utility
, then check to see if it's listed in the menu

Yeah it is strange if your running Cinnamon because i'm sure it's installed by default, but I can't speak for other versions

Anyway glad you got it sorted
