Were they on internal storage or on a SD card?

Are you running RT 8.0 or 8.1?

EDIT: Fair warning: you probably can't, unless something like OneDrive was backing them up somewhere. RT can't run file recovery software much better than an iPad could.

Lost files were on the internal storage.

As the X86 emulator, you can run the program to restore the photos? Installation program X86 is successful, but when I run an error peloader(

Yeah, the x86 emulator probably doesn't support the APIs required for such programs; they're pretty obscure and surely weren't the dev's first priority. I really, really wish that tool's source code would be released so people could continue working on it...

Since you're on 8.0 (and already jailbroken, even) the question becomes "what open-source undelete utilities for Windows are available?" Typing "open source file undelete" into Bing gives http://kickassundelete.sourceforge.net/ as the first hit. What's more, it's entirely written in C#, as far as I can tell, even supports Mono. It might not even need to be recompiled and should be trivial to recompile if needed.

Obligatory reminder: Don't use the tablet (any more than absolutely necessary) until you have a chance to run the undelete tool. There's a pretty fair chance of the data getting overwritten, or even just getting TRIMmed out of the SSD, if you do so.

After the program kichkassundelete warning popup window appears. Even as an administrator program does not see the internal and external storage. What should I do in this case? How to get full access to the device with windows RT?

On my Surface RT, this program also cannot detect the internal C: drive. However it can detect and scan USB drives (fat32 & ntfs) if it's run as Administrator (it prompts for this during load). So the program does seem to work to some extent. I have no idea why the C: drive is hidden/blocked.

May need to look for another program then, damn. Post-Vista, the system drive is *slightly* more protected against such access... but it's easy to work around if the developer knows what they're doing. Maybe KAUD only fully works on XP? I'm not sure; I haven't used it.
