What is Locate32?
Locate32 is software which can be used to find files from your harddrives and other locations. It works like updatedb and locate commands in Unix based systems. 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 which can be used to both update and access databases.
The project seems to be no longer developed. Last version, 188.8.131.5220a, released in May 2015, can be still downloaded from SourceForge.

Discontinued in 2011, developer no longer supporting "Locate32". Program uses ancient Win-98 engineering by building its own data base.
Does not search contents .... seaches for file names ONLY.
