APPEND should be harmless here, just not needed.

All the specific file system exceptions are defined in java.nio.file but 
it's not clear to me that you only want to handle NoSuchFileException. 
Don't you want to handle cases where the zombie file can't be opened for 
other reasons (file permission issues for example that would manifest as 
an AccessDeniedException)?
