ID very slow on creating packages
ID 15.1.2 on MBP 15" 2019 macOS Catalina 10.15.6
Since updating to ID 15.1.2 creating packages (File > Package) takes sooooo much time – especially collecting image files into the Links-folder. Feels like using a last century internet connection to copy them instead of a ssd. Really bad: There's no progress shown on the progress bar. The only way to figure out that ID still works ist to check the Links-folder again and again where you can see the files dropping in one after another …

Ok, it looks like this is NOT an InDesign problem. Here’s my setting that causes the problem:
I’m using a local folder with all subfolders encrypted by Boxcryptor. They are synced with OneDrive. When packing into these encrypted folders it takes hours to complete. But packing to an unencrypted folder runs perfect, even when it is synced with OneDrive. So it seems that there is a problem with Boxcryptor – but in a strange way: When packing to an encrypted external SSD there’s no problem. And copying the result back into the encrypted synced OneDrive folder even runs on regular speed. Only packing directly into the OneDrive-synced encrypted folders slows it extremely down.
If anybody else has the same issue, here’s my workaround: Create packages to unencrypted folders and move the final package manually into the encrypted target folder.
@Adobe: Please close this thread as solved.
