Let me move this to the InDesign forum for you, which is the appropriate forum for your question.
The Using the Community forum is for help in using the Adobe Support Community forums, not for help with specific programs, installation issues, or account issues such as subscription questions or billing problems, or generalized questions about Creative Cloud services.
* Product questions should be posted in the associated product community. * Installation questions should be posted in the Download & Install community. * Account issues, including subscription questions or billing problems, should be posted in the Account, Payment, & Plan community. * Questions about the Creative Cloud desktop app or general questions about apps in the Creative Cloud should be posted to the Creative Cloud Services community.
Are the linke documents local or on a server, like a cloud? If they are in the cloud, they might not have a copy local to optimize your diskspace. Only often used files are directly accessible. Therefore I recommend to force these files to be used once, like opening the folder in Bridge to get previews. Then will InDesign get them.
