TortoiseSVN times out scanning many branches

Sep 18, 2013 at 8:49 AM
I have been using TortoiseSVN successfully for over 12 months to connect to TFS 2008 via SVNBridge.
Recently however, updating a project was starting to take forever.
I ran Fiddler on my local PC to see what (if any) activity was happening.
I noticed that my project had been branched (By other TFS Users) and that this was being scanned by Tortoise, but being ignored. Many branches have been created recently and this is the cause of the eventual tortoise time out. Does anyone know how to only update this working branch, and not scan through every other branch?
