InDesign CC 2021 - Preflight Slows Down Performance to Linked Files on Shared Drive

Running INDD CC 2021 on Windows 10.

Performance is degraded on every mouse-click or change (exactly 13 seconds between each one). I can ping our shared drive with no loss of data or delays. I can open the linked files from INDD quickly in the native app (PS or Illus).

If I disable Preflight everything works as it should with no delays at all.

Any ideas on a fix for this? I guess for now I can enable Preflight right before exporting (if I remember).

I think this just started after the last update.

Something in the preflight perhaps

Try turning each option off one by one to see where the preflight is slowing it down.

If a document is not behaving well then try 

File>Export 

Choose IDML

Open the IDML in InDesign
Save the file as a new InDesign file with a new name
See if the issue persists.

Try resetting your preferences:
The easiest way to reset everything is to delete the InDesign preferences: as soon as InDesign starts to boot hold down Shift, Alt, Ctrl (and Apple/Cmd if working on a Macintosh). A dialog will appear asking to delete the InDesign Preferences, select 'Yes' on this dialog.
