Root partitions cannot be unmounted during operation, only at shut-down.
An alternate root / boot (including Knoppix or UBCD) will allow
unmounted manipulation of a file system that cannot otherwise be
unmounted during normal operations, but even more changes will be made
to that file system during the shutdown process.

In fact, given normal system operations (logging, e.g.) and the fact
that your files are all on one file system (and the fact that you've
been using the system for, say, this email dialog?) suggests you are
rather unlikely to be able to recover much.
