Is there any cloud backup giving this type of automatic cloud sync across devices ?

I want a cloud storage with live sync like this

Imagine 2 Computers A & B

There is folder with name "Documents" in both Computers . Same name in both pcs

Both folder are attached to a cloud storage

Now a user created a document named "tours.docx" in PC A, and adding some texts in it and saving it

Now my need is , the saved document have to automatically uploaded to cloud and each saves must be reflected to cloud (when user clicks save in word)

And now when the user open PC B , in it's Document folder , the last saved copy of "tours.docx" from PC A have to available in PC B Documents folder

Now the user adding extra content in tours.docx from PC B and saving it .

Now he able to access the last saved content of tours.docx from PC A.

AND also in cloud storage via browser

The next thing is ,.... the files have to be available in the local folder even without interent (when connected , changes have to be reflected across devices )

Install Google Drive in both systems and login via the same account. It will solve one part of your query.

Microsoft has this fully setup in Windows 10, for free. Try the OneDrive folder/option. If you need more space, you need to pay.

This can also be done using Dropbox. I am not sure about Google Drive.

This seems more like a use case for Syncthing than cloud storage.

Syncthing is a P2P syncing tool that allows you to sync files across multiple devices without requiring a server. I use it to sync files between my phone, PC and VPS simultaneously. You just need to have Syncthing installed on your devices, share a directory on one of those devices and add the other devices to the one doing the sharing using a QR code. After this any file you put in the shared directory on any device gets replicated to the other shared devices as well. It's pretty seamless once you set it up.

I agree. I have experienced better sync with dropbox. Although OP should try all, Dropbox, One Drive and Google drive, before finalizing on one service for their need.

With Synching, you don't even need a cloud storage service. There are no servers involved, cloud storage or otherwise. It's completely P2P and syncs anywhere in the world.

OP said that he needs that whenever a file is saved to a directory on one PC, it should automatically become available in a directory in another PC. No cloud service does that, they only save files in the cloud but don't automatically download to another machine.

Well, purpose of having cloud storage is that files are kept synced to another machine, but yes, never heard of Synching. Useful for those who dont want cloud storage and just want to sync files between devices. So tfs.

Isn't this possible simply be setting up a sync folder on other pc/device & enable the sync with same cloud folder which is set to sync with folder on original device?

Syncthing is actually great. I use it to sync files from Phone to NAS when Im connected to home network (phone, docs, etc)
Then make sync to Google Drive using rclone-crypt

I am not sure that's possible with existing cloud services. All that I have seen are synching between a local folder and cloud folder, but not from cloud folder to a local folder on another machine altogether. I think you can do this with Mega, but I am not sure.

Yeah, I basically use it as a custom password wallet solution. It syncs my keepass database between my phone, PC and VPS. So if I add a new entry and save on any of the devices, the updated database gets synched to the other devices.

isn't this the same,just with an extra step for initial setting up on other pc.
Choose which OneDrive folders to sync to your computer
The sync settings you choose are unique to each computer unless you're syncing everything everywhere. Also, if you're choosing folders on two computers and you create a new folder on computer A that you want to sync to computer B, you'll need to go to computer B and select the new folder there.
