Oh yes, after a nice mistake in ReiserFS, I managed to recover 23GB of
deleted files. What a nightmare that was.
Also you can undelete any open file with a little trick since the
files won't be actually deleted until the last app closes the file. I
managed to save my skin (and job) using that trick at least once.

Just because it didn't work for you, it doesn't mean it doesn't work for anyone.
