I know when I do a Factory Reset that it will leave my /media but when I do a data wipe will that leave /media also?

"Factory Reset" will delete all files on /data except /data/media.

"Format data" will recreate the filesystem and run a secure erase (which takes more than an hour) - this deletes everything on /data.
