Dashboard Background Tasks

Windows 10
Desktop PC (Dell)
May question is what are “Background Tasks” in Settings about and what are they doing?
That in order to understand why I do need them

Thanks in advance,

Are you able to provide an image? What device do you own? Have you read all Information WDMyCloudInfoIcon WDMyCloudInformationIcon that is provided, if any? Have you looked at Help if any is provided? See drop down menu.

It is not about device.
It is about WD software Dashboard, as I wrote
No Help provided
I found WD Dashboard User Manuel, but probably it is not updated - there is no item I’m asking about.
Attached two screen shots

If you don’t own a device then what is this, WDC WD40EZRX-00SP?

I own two WD My Clouds, a 1st and a 2nd generation. They both have Dashboards where I set up the way I want them to work among other things.

Background task are the task that take place in the background even though you may be using the device. From what I see in your images you can make a couple of choices of what you want to happen for Background Task.

Hi, cat0w
I know how many and what WDI have on my PC,
but as have mentioned, it does not matter.
My question was regarding program Dashboard and about
one of its settings.
Generally, I know what means “background task”, but what does it men in this context?
If you also do not know what means this setting and two of its options,
how it might help to answer my question?
As I wrote, I found and downloaded Dashboard program User Manual, but it was for elder version and there was no such a setting (Background Tasks)
Thanks for trying!
