synchronization is one-off action. keepuptodate is continuous.

synchronization: if there is update at the source file, it will not apply to the destination
keepuptodate: source and destination will always be the same

Am i correct?
Thank you.

That's not correct.
Please read the above articles.

My understanding after reading the article is:
keepuptodate: it's a running process, more like a action listener to watch for changes from the source and reflect it to the destination.

synchronization: the sync action is perform only when the program/script is running


Please correct me if i am wrong
Thanks a lot.
