Sorry I didnt make it clear -- this is not in emacs.
Yes there is helm-recoll -- but Ive not tried it

I just use recoll at the command line (or Alt-F2)

Also for simple file-name searching locate works good
And works well inside emacs (M-x locate )

Both locate and recoll need a make/update index step which is

- cpu and time intensive
- tends to get stale

My vague recollection is that tracker does this automatically but I found it 
too intrusive.
