Locate32 - Find files



Locate32 on cogit.net
Sourceforge link
Hello, i would like to introduce this freeware program, that i'm using here.

Description from the HP:


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. Supported operating systems: Windows 98/ME/NT4/2000/XP/Vista/7.


As the program was not updated for a long time, so if you open the about dialog box, and click on the link there, it will open a webpage to locate32.net, which is expired and used by something else.

So here is the url to the still working webpage, and a link to the sourceforge page.

No apps for that, here. I just wrote a .bat script to do it.
