Thanks again Richard,
So Windows 10 now calls what used to be known as Defrag, "Optimization." I didn't know that but have now checked and thankfully, automatic optimization is not turned on, so I guess that excludes drive optimization as the culprit for the long time is takes for the RDC operation to complete.
The reason I haven't responded sooner is because I just performed another RDC operation and it took 2hrs 08minutes. This is less than 24 hours since the last RDC and I am at a loss to understand why the operation took so long. Very little has changed on my laptop hard disk in the time between the two operations.
I think I'd better continue this conversation using a new thread title because I have strayed from the original topic I created and it will confuse/irritate anyone doing future searches of the forum.
