It can backup the newly-created or updated files and folders from the source to the target directory. That is to say, file sync is going to keep two files or more stay the same. The files can be synchronized to the local disk or the different computers, and we called the single file synchronization or remote file synchronization. When doing file synchronization, it will scan the files of both folders and compare with the source directory to find the modified/added/deleted files, then, transmit the needed files or delete the needless files to stay the files the same.
