No text output in rsync

The command 'rsync -av --delete -e ssh --exclude-from=/home/user/exclude /home/user/ user@ &> /dev/null' used to generate text output as to what rsync was doing, but after I inserted --progress into the mix (which didn't show a progress bar) there's no text output at all anymore, even without the inclusion of the --progress option. What am I doing wrong?

The &> at the end is redirecting everything to /dev/null so you won't see it.

Very good. Don't know why I didn't see that.
