I think It would be great if there is some search capability like

that use "updatedb" utility. The utility is available in both MS Windows and Unix.

I have had a look at globalff.el, and it seems to me that an even better way forward would be to talk to the developer of globalff and ask him to add a feature: It should be possible to take a default search string is taken from the file name at point in a similar way as ffap does it. He could even use ffap internals to grab that string in a useful way, I guess. This would be something not only useful in Org-mode, but in many other modes too.

Subject: [Emacs-orgmode] Managing files?

Hi, I've been using emacs-org for a while.  And I always find it's so
troublesome to manage various files in emacs-org.  Although I can use
the file links, and with remember.el it's easy for files that can be
open in emacs to be linked in my org files, moving files around, storing
files and changing files corresponding to a typical project are not
easily done in emacs-org and need much more work.

I think you usually have many files, text, pdf, latex and etc., but how
do you manage these files?  Can someone please recommend me a scheme to
do that?
