You can perfectly use TortoiseSVN for a local standalone use. Three steps:

1. "Creating The Repository With TortoiseSVN"
http://tortoisesvn.net/docs/release/TortoiseSVN_en/tsvn-repository.html#tsvn-repository-create-tortoisesvn

2. "Import"
http://tortoisesvn.net/docs/release/TortoiseSVN_en/tsvn-dug-import.html#tsvn-dug-import-2
Note: Please note that the folder you imported is NOT under version
control! To get a version-controlled working copy you need to do a
Checkout of the version you just imported.

3. "Checking Out A Working Copy"
http://tortoisesvn.net/docs/release/TortoiseSVN_en/tsvn-dug-checkout.html
