How to run checkdisk from recovery console (Windows xp). Courtesy dsenette
  • Insert the Windows XP startup disk into the floppy disk drive, or insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.
    Note:Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted to do so.
  • When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
    Note:If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you want to access from the Recovery Console.
  • When you are prompted to do so, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
  • At the Recovery Console command prompt, type the following then press Enter:

    chkdsk /r

  • Allow this to run UNDISTURBED until completed (45 min or so)
  • Report any errors

If I do not have the Windows XP startup disk CD, can I download it, burn it to a cd from another computer then use that CD?

Late I know but for others that may read this thread, there are no legitimate sources for end users to download XP from, as XP is no longer supported by Microsoft I suggest that you check to see if your computer can be upgraded to Windows 7 or 8.1, see here

It certainly depends on what you mean by deleted.

 

If you reformatted your machine with a OS image (updating through replacing), then you're out of luck. 

 

However, if you simply cannot find your pictures and have decided that they have been deleted, there's a chance that your pictures are still recoverable on your machine. (Perhaps in the Recycle Bin - hasn't been emptied yet).
