1. click on start menu.

2. open run and type regedit and press enter

3. then on the regedit go to: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders

4. on the right pane check if you can see the missing files or folders (under Name column) has the default %USERPROFILE% location (under Data column) for it.

5. right click on the missing files or folders and click modify

6. Type in the default location of the missing personal user folder, then click OK.

7. Close regedit.

8. Logoff and logon, or restart the computer to restore the folder.

Well, System restore wouldn't delete any picture file it only restores system files. registry settings. files outside of Windows should be intact unless you personally deleted them.

you can also undo system restore check this thread to get more information :
