It is possible to automatically update other copies of a given file, (on a PC... or even a network or server) when you add to any one of them?

Not as you seem to think.

But you can overwrite the other copy. with whatever new you just did.
FreeFRileSync has a function for RealTimeSync.
Save here, it writes to that new folder in the other place.
 
You have to be extremely careful with this approach. Imagine you mess up the source file, and by the time you recognise the mess, it is already propagated to other places. The mess could be as simple as deleting a paragraph from a document, and as nasty as cryptovirus.

Give us some details of what you're actually looking to do.
Maybe there is another path.
I don't actually have an example I'm currently working on. I was just thinking that sometimes such a function might be useful so thought I'd ask here. FreeFRileSync that you suggested seems to do what I imagined.

Thank you.
