See note at end.

That's normal. TSVNCache runs as a very low priority task, so anything
else should be able to interrupt it. It needs to scan your working copy,
which is what the disk activity is. However, if you are low on memory,
the OS task switching can kill the system. With large WCs, the cache
obviously eats more memory.

Need more information:
Is the repository local or accessed over the internet?
Which protocol are you using (http/https/svn/svn+ssh/file)?
What version of TSVN?
What version of SVN server?
