For some reasons I do want to check out all projects in one WC instead of creating a local, normal directory and then checking out each project into it. So using the command line I do a svn co -N to get the top level folder (with nothing in it) and then do a svn up -N project1 project2 ... for the projects I need. Sometimes I also find that I don't need a project anymore and to speed up svn operations I usually delete that project's WC sub-folder and then do a svn -N project in the top-level, which regenerates that folder, but not all the folders underneith. Unfortunately I can't bring up the TSVN context menu for missing entries and therefor can't use "Update to Revision" to non-recursively create them. Deleting all the contents of a folder and then doing a non-recursive update is different, as the folder will still list those entries as missing and a normal
 update will restore them, whereas in the first approach it wouldn't.

You might be able to do all your checkouts from the TortoiseSVN
Repo-Browser, instead of through File Explorer. Then you can use the
"Only update top folder" checkbox in the Checkout dialog from there,
which is about the same as "svn co -N".
