Extremely slow deletion of files

One of my albums contains 36 files. Most of them are version sets. I apply the command Flatten Version Set (including deletion of files from disk) to all of them simultaneously. PSE starts working on it and keeps doing so for more than 20 min (!). The progress windows shows that it is stuck (?) at 79%. I then click a few times on the progress popup, resulting in a very short show of the option to wait or to close the program. This choice then disappears anmd everything seems okay: the version sets are flattened.

Is this behaviour to be expected?

I would never store my working catalog folder in the OneDrive folder. There is no advantage in storing the catalog folder in the hope to share it with  another computer. The catalog points to the media files in the original computer if it is used on another computer. All files are disconnected. While it's a good idea to store media files in the OneDrive folder, for catalogs the most you can do is to store a copy of the catalog folder as a kind of backup for your catalog on the original computer.
