the locate command is superfast but needs to build an index first.
almost any new OS has indexing your files build-in.
but you can guess they checksum EVERY SINGLE FILE and if it does not match ANY existing file-signature in the database… it might get uploaded to the NSA server without your consent of course.
so you should remove this:
in my case it is located here:
dpkg -l|grep tracker;
ii tracker 1.2.4-2 i386 metadata database, indexer and search tool
apt-get remove tracker;
apt-get remove libtracker-miner-1.0-0:i386 tracker-extract tracker-gui libtracker-sparql-1.0-0:i386 libtracker-control-1.0-0:i386 gir1.2-tracker-1.0:i386 tracker-gui tracker-miner-fs; # this will also uninstall the default filemanager "nautilus"
apt-get install nautilus; # reinstall filemanager nautilus, will also install libtracker-sparql-1.0-0
