2-way sync

Hi I have set up dropbox sync from my laptop (let's call this Computer A) 

My question is:

1) download a sync-ed file from dropbox on ANOTHER computer B. Edit this file.

2) Upload this file back to dropbox, replacing the previous version.

3) Will the same file in Computer A be updated?

Thank you.
