Look under the brake assembly, near the axle/hub assembly. There is a small metal tag hanging off the hub assembly. I have no idea what it was for but with a little rust it bent just enough to barely touch the rotor. I took a saw and cut it off on both sides, no more noise. Maybe not your problem but i was so happy when I found that!
Thank YOU Sir, that was exactly my same finding. Reading many post I thought for sure I was in for replacing a front wheel hub, but no, it was a tab-bracket on the lower inside, dragging on the back of the caliper. I pried it away from the caliper and the squealing is gone.
Thanks again for your post.
