The system recovery formats/erases the hard drive then re installs the operating system and programmes as if it were the first day you bought it, so unfortunately anything saved will be erased, the reason for no earlier restore date other than when you recoverd the system is because as far as the system is concerned that was the first day of use.

Some of the pictures was lost. How to recover it?

You can often successfully recover deleted files from a PC, phone or camera memory card or USB Memory stick, it just depends on what's happened since the files were deleted.
When you delete files the data itself isn't deleted, just the index entry that says where the data for those files is located. The space containing the deleted files is also now marked as free space so it is available to the system for any new files to be written there instead.

If and when that happens, then it becomes too late to recover your deleted files so it is very, very important to not save any new files or data to the device concerned.
If the deleted files are on a memory card or USB memory stick, just don't save any new files to it.

One of the easiest ways to see if you can recover deleted pictures is to try some photo recovery software. Recommended asoftech photo recovery as it saved my life many times.
