Locate32 – Free Search Software For Windows

Posted In Utilities - By Techtiplib on Wednesday, August 13th, 2014 With No Comments »

This free search software for Windows 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.

Locate32 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. Locate32 includes a dialog-based application as well as console programs that can be used to update and access the databases. This search tool is not primarily meant to find text or data within files, but it has a primitive feature to do this.

Locate32 works in Windows 98/ME/NT4/2000/XP/Vista/7.
