From the clickable Help in the Settings dialog:

"Users sometimes ask how these three settings interact, and the

if (path is in include list)
show overlays
if (path is allowed drive type) AND (path is not in exclude list)
show overlays

The include list always makes the overlays show. Otherwise, overlays are
shown for all marked drive types unless the path is excluded.

TSVNCache.exe also uses these paths to restrict its scanning. If you
want it to look only in particular folders, disable all drive types and
include only the folders you specifically want to be scanned."

The existing tooltips are pretty targeted... the Help file is probably
the better place for the "how it works in detail" information (which is
how it is now).
