SYNC(8) Maintenance Commands and Procedures SYNC(8)

sync - update the super block


sync executes the sync system primitive. If the system is to be stopped, sync must be called to ensure file system integrity. It will flush all previously unwritten system buffers out to disk, thus assuring that all file modifications up to that point will be saved. See sync(2) for details.
