Default If you did a reset, did your apps/settings come back automatically...or not?

I'm trying to figure out how frequently the backup function on the Droid is failing to operate...

I've had to reset several times due to exchanges and other issues (I'm on my fourth Droid), and have never had my apps/settings/wallpaper come back automatically. Backup has always been enabled in Settings.

All I get is that Marketplace remembers and lists my purchased apps in the Downloads view, but none of the ones I had installed before the reset are reinstalled automatically. Also, none of the free apps I had downloaded are listed in Downloads in Marketplace, and none of the free apps I had installed are reinstalled. No settings are replicated, wallpaper is always the generic Droid standard.

Can you post if you've done a reset and what, if anything was automatically restored? If nothing was restored automatically, would like to hear about that.

And I'm not concerned with emails/contacts/calendar - those always sync back down from the Google cloud just fine...
