Same problem on an 1812+ with the latest version of DiskStation. Synology folks, if you are listening this issue should be very easy to fix and it makes you look bad because the user thinks something is wrong when really the system is working perfectly.

I also have problems with the background task status disappearing. For me, it happens whenever I get logged out of the web GUI... once I log in again, the background task window and icon have vanished.

You'd think Synology's programmers could have done a check at login to see if there are any background operations in progress, and re-display the window/icon. But noooo...

At the very least, there ought to be an option somewhere in the GUI to open the background tasks window manually.

Just one of many annoyances with Synology's DSM.

(P.S. - I am still using DSM 4.3 here. If complaints are still being posted [as of Oct. 2015] then I expect the same issue affects DSM 5.x.)

bump. I'm having the same issue. Just got a DS216+ii, with 2 4TB drives. Trying to transfer 1TB of files. Multiple times it would start the transfer and status would disappear I ended up trying to restart multiple times, but now I'm not sure what's overwritten and what's not. Logging out and back in didn't do it for me. How can i check if the transfer is still going on? I only got 10GB of 900GB transferred.

Anyone come up with a fix yet? I'm on the latest firmware.
