Question Have deleted all folders/files. How to recover?

Hi please can somebody help me?.......

I purchased an unlocked and unbranded Samsung Galaxy S i9000 from Amazon.

After playing around with it for some time, installing all sorts and getting to know how to use it I decided I would perform a factory reset to "clean" it before continuing to use it "properly".

Before performing the factory reset I navigated to "My Files", selected delete, then selected every single folder and file and deleted them.
I then performed the factory reset.

Now I am missing 4 images which were available as wallpaper in "gallery" and probably several other files/folders.

I thought the factory reset would return the phone to its original state and reproduce any folders/files I may have deleted in the process. I thought they might be stored in a hidden "partition" or similar which I had no access to.

Anyway my questions are how can I restore my phone to its original state and which other files/folders would have been present initially but have now been deleted by me?

Many thanks for any help.

Have you tried the 3-Button Recovery Mode?
With the phone switched off, press and hold together Vol Up/Home/Power.
Now wait several seconds and on the screen you will notice you can do a number of things... Look at Factory Reset & SD Card.
Select these one by one and afterwards select the top selection named ReBoot.

I tried this reboot and it gives me different options.
Reboot system now
reinstall packages
delete all user data
delete cache data

reinstall packages doesn't work because it says i am missing the update file from my sd card

where could i find this file?
