Section 6 - The File/Folder Paths Section
The file/folder paths section of The Home Tab displays the application path and also the core file names of the files created by the application.
 
It displays the file path and name of the file used to persist the User Settings, the file path and name of the used to persist any user defined back up tasks that the user has created and also the file path and name of the log file. These file paths and file names are clarified for the user in case they wish to either edit the settings or tasks manually (as they are saved as text files not binary files).
 
Finally, section 6 also allows the user to define the file path and name of the original DayzServer_x64.exe file which is used installed to the c:\program files (x86)\steam\steamapps\common\dayzserver folder by default (unless you have chosen to install Dayz Server Files instance elsewhere by default).
 
This feature exists so that Steam may automatically update the Dayz Server Files instance without it affecting your Dayz Server instance, thus allowing you update your Dayz Server as and when you wish, rather then Steam automatically updating it whenever Bohemia Interactive push out any updates for Dayz Server Files.

Section 7 - Currently Selected Task Details Section
The current task details section of The Home Tab displays the current task details (as the title implies).
 
When any user created tasks exist and a task is selected in My Tasks Tab, it shows the details for the selected task.
 
In particular, it shows the currently selected task's task-id (record number), the task name, the date/time the task was last run (if at all), the task's DayzServer_x64.exe build/version number and the master DayzServer_x64.exe build/version number.
 
The version numbers are displayed so that the user can see at a glance whether they need to update their instance of Dayz Server Files.
