How to synchronize two different files?

Hello, I have the latest stable release of a UNIX-like O.S. in the ISO format, and want to synchronize it with the latest Release Candidate (RC) of it, in order to reducing bandwidth usage. The ISO images for that O.S. is provided via different protocols including rsync, FTP and HTTP

Is this possible? If yes, how?

Thanks for the help.

Hellp temp-usr,

Do you think it might be quite useful to tell us which "UNIX-like" OS you are working with?

Currently I am using Debian 8.x but I want to switch to "FreeBSD", ISO images are for it.

I don't think you can really synchronize them at the disk-image level, just the file level. You'd have to convince someone to mount that ISO so you can run rsync against it.

Why do you want to synchronize iso-images? Once you have installed the OS, you won't need the iso image any more.

In my very basic knowledge of FreeBSD, you get package updates and ports. Ports are upgraded quite efficiently.
