Description

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.

    Simple & Superb & Fast Utility(I think it uses MFT to catalogue databases), How can we define different configuration(i.e. passing arguments like different databases), like One shortcut to find MP3s, another-one for Movies... At last, Please update link for new versions in "About" dialog box. it is dead link.

    It's a shame you stopped improving it. Greatest search option for windows anyway. Thank you.

    using it for more then 10 years. perfectly similar to 'good old' windows xp search bar, but faster. I really wish it will be an active-project again.
