The "add" function from the commit/check-for-modifications dialog is
intended to 'correct' missing adds. If you have to add a lot of files at
once recursively (because you have a new folder with lots of other
unversioned folders in it), then you should use the "Add" function from
the explorer->TortoiseSVN->Add submenu. That one will show up a special
"Add" dialog, showing *all* files recursively which you then can add in
one step.

Still, you *can* add all files from the commit/check-for-modifications
dialog as you discovered. But those dialogs are not meant to show
unversioned files in unversioned folders, because usually those files
are uninteresting for a commit or for checking the state of your working
copy, and therefore just would clutter those dialogs.
