Same as Update Only command. In addition, write modified tags to files and read tags from modified files. As an option, one can prefer tags or files when both have been changed. Both files and tags are modified.

Same as Update Only command. In addition, read tags from modified files. As an option one can force read if both files and tags have been changed. Some modified tags may be lost, but files are never modified.
