Linux alternative to Everything (tracker by Voidtools)

Post by todda7 » Fri Jun 25, 2010 11:56 am

Hello.

I need an alternative to http://www.voidtools.com/ Everything, an extremely fast file indexer which is able to index 5 TB of data in under a minute.
I have tried Beagle, Tracker and so on, but they are all very slow and lack the functionality of Everything.

It also have an HTTP server which is extremely easy to use so I can share my files both on the local network and on the Internet.

Do you know any good one?

Excuse me?

It's a Windows application, and I need a Linux alternative.

What is this for? Is this to find personal files on your desktop, find a random image for a web server, pull files for users in a business environment, etc...?

locate might be what you're looking for, it reads an index of the file system and is very fast:
