Where is Apple’s Disk Utility?

From today’s mail bag:

I do not seem to be able to find the Apple Disk Utility program. Please help!

Here is my response:

To run Disk Utility, first open a Finder window by double-clicking the Macintosh HD icon on your Mac desktop or by selecting File>New Finder Window from the menu bar. Open the Applications folder, then scroll the list until you see the Utilities folder. Disk Utility is located in Utilities.

Apple includes a help menu with Mac OS X that users can use to locate answers to common questions. Here is a sample screen:

You can also search for files and folders by clicking the Spotlight icon located in the upper right corner of the screen or by entering text in the oblong search window in Finder (the icon appears as a small magnifying glass).
