automatically resumes all tasks.

CAUTION: Leaving Write Back Cache enabled can increase the likelihood of data being corrupted if the system experiences a power interruption or unexpected shutdown. Note: A disk’s cache setting cannot be changed if a task is active for the array. The cache settings are enabled when the task is finished.
