I'm sorry, what is the "repository manager"? I'm not familiar with
anything in TortoiseSVN by that name.

What commands did you use to add the folders (specifically)? Where did
you place your local repository? Does that folder get virus scanned?
Where is your working copy (if applicable)? Does THAT folder get virus
scanned? Is it truly local or on a network share of some kind?

On a somewhat unrelated note, what on earth are you putting into SVN at
repository creation, that is nearly a gigabyte in size?

SVN employs compression of some kind in the repository, and compressing
a gigabyte of data might actually take a minute or two even on your
machine. But if everything is really local, I don't think I'd expect
"several minutes" on a modern machine. A quick check could be, how long
does it take a compression utility like WinZip or 7-zip to compress all
those files? If the time is comparable, then that's probably the reason.
