Another good tip might be to read the help page.

http://tortoisesvn.net/docs/release/TortoiseSVN_en/tsvn-dug-settings.html#tsvn-dug-settings-overlay

"Users sometimes ask how these three settings interact, and the
definitive answer is:

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."
