Locate32 finds files and directories based on file names.
Locate32 finds files and directories based on file and folder names stored in a database. Locate32 saves to a database the names of all files on your hard drives. Once the file indexing has occurred, you can locate files quickly by using the application's search form. It works like "updatedb" and "locate" commands in Unix. In other words, it uses databases to store information about directory structures and uses these databases in searches. The use of these databases provides very fast searching speed. The software includes a dialog-based application as well as console programs that can be used to update and access the databases. Locate32 is not primarily meant to find text or data within files, but it has a primitive feature to do this.

zfind is a fast file search utility/API for searching within archives
Many times, developers (or even, normal users) run into an issue of searching for a resource that is inside a zip. Worse, that resource is inside a zip which is itself inside ANOTHER zip (i.e. nested archive). Possibly you need to verify whether a particular resource is present in an ear or you want to know part of a file name but don't know which zip/jar on your hard disk contains that class file. zfind solves this problem. zfind is very fast and it works on most common archive/compress files. Apart from GUI and command line, it also provides API support which let's you use it in your java code as a 3rd party library. Thanks for using, and if you find any bug, do post a ticket or discussion topic. I can't fix anything if I don't know the problem :) **Check Wiki for USAGE details
