Lost homework of Khmer student

The power often goes off, and yesterday it went off when one of the Bible School students was writing an essay on the computer in the library. So Soeun spent the evening trying to recover it , but with no luck.
The students here usually write their homework by hand, but this particular piece had to be typed. Not many students know much about computers so it must be quite a challenge for some.
I don't think any of them would have their own computer, but many do have flash drives, and there are a few computers in the library they can use. This particular student had borrowed some one's flash drive to use in the library. Soeun checked both the flash and the computer but there was nothing saved. I think the school computers wipe anything new when they are shut down- which it terrible for people when the power goes off , or if they don't know how to save it on to a flash or have a flash to use.
