Problem: if you cancel moving a folder on MacOSX from one partition to another, the files remaining on the source vanish. Did fall for this and last a very important and quite long TeX document.

Have tried three tools for recovery... FileSalvage, Boomerang and DataRescue, bot all do not have TeX templates.

What I am looking for is either a recovery tool where I can really manually specify sequences to look for, or a disk editor that I could use to search the whole hard disk for keywords of the TeX document (e.g. "\begin{document}" and "\end{document}".).

Any hint where to get such a tool would be very much appreciated!
Either MacOSX, or able to read HFS+ disks attached to a Windows machine.

(btw, the only reference to a MacOSX disk editor I found was Norton Disk Editor X, part of Norton Utilities, which is no longer available for the Mac it seems... a source where I could get it would be appreciated as well.)
