B-4 is indeed the 'positronic bank'. The information is in there but he simply couldn't understand it immediately. Imagine opening a book of complex mathematics far beyond your current proficiency. Where to begin? We see by the end of Nemesis, as Picard is trying to explain to him, that B-4 is partially, subconsciously even, humming the song that Data had been practicing for Riker and Troi's wedding (at the start of the film).
Data is in there under the surface. I think there is also written material in novels etc that take the story further, along the lines of Data coming back, or at least, B-4 being in full possession of Data's memories and unique behavior.
