Can't rsync from Seafile's mounted folder

So I mount Seafile for the purpose to access the files directly on the server and to backup to an encrypted drive. The problem is, when rsync runs it never backs up anything in the mounted folder. I can browse through it, but it looks like rsync doesn’t see anything there. Not sure how that works, any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

My guess is that rsync doesn’t have permission to access the files. When I ran seaf-fuse.sh on my server everything ended up only readable by root.

If that isn’t it, do you get any errors from rsync? And what does it look like when you stat a file?

Also what are the arguments you are giving to rsync?
