Not seeing what "Synchronize" does

When I right-click a file or folder in my project, I see the option "Synchronize [project name]", but I'm not sure what this does based on the documentation, and clicking it appears to do nothing.

Our project has a deployment server going to a mapped drive (Windows), which uploads and compares files just fine using Upload, and the project is in a git repo folder.

We're using PHPStorm 10.

Hi there,

"File | Synchronize" re-reads local project files looking for possible changes that were done outside of the IDE (e.g. you run "php artisan" command (Laravel) or some "composer update" in external terminal and do not have automatic sync on focus change option enabled).
