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.

hosted elsewhere; please contact me if you have those), and some other
miscellanious files aimed for developers of language packages.
Sourceforge have also discussion forums, which could be used as Locate32
