Seafile behavior with Network Drive

SO we decided to move our seafile storage to a external drive, unfortunately there has been problems. I think this probably relates to the bugs this software is known for, but perhaps I missed something.

The seafile folders are on an external NAS that is connected via IP (the main drive has an IP on the intranet, and the master drive is attached to that via a USB 3.0 port. We have the drive in explorer showing as a mapped network drive.)

We can browse the folders all day long as long as the seafile client is shut off, but if it is on, everytime we access the folder it crashes explorer.exe.

Obviously this bug causes the setup to be utterly useless.

Anyone have any suggestions, ?
