Having a problem with TortoiseSVN: taking long time!

I am currently having a problem with TortoiseSVN. When I try to run “Check for modifications”, for example, it would take extremely long time: from the state of “Please wait…” to finally display the file list. This occurs with some of my folders.

Some folders, though with the same repository and almost the same size and number of files, seem to take longer time for “Check for modifications” than others. Some folders (approximately 4GB) may take a few seconds, while others with the same sizes would take about 5 to 10 minutes to complete the processing. In case of a 100GB folder, it would take, say 2 hours.

Among the folders taking longer time, those of smaller sizes tend to take less (or no) time once "Check for modifications" is completed.
On the other hand, folders with the size of 10GB or larger would take just around the same long time even once “Check for modifications” is completed. Moreover, other folders that has been through Check for modifications and have no problem afterwards will be reverted back to the taking longer time state!

The same phenomena happen not only with “Check for modifications”, but also all the other processes relating to show the file list of “Working copy”, such as “Commit” and “Resolve”.
On the other hand, it would not take that long time with “Update” as long as the difference is small.

This phenomenon takes place in other repositories using different servers.
However, it does not happen in the other user environment who has checked out the same repository--and it wouldn’t take longer than 10 seconds to complete the processing.

I don’t know exactly what factors about folders would cause this phenomenon, but it seems to happen only with the repositories that has been checked out recently.

The version of TortoiseSVN is 1.9.3. The phenomenon happened in the version 1.7.9 so that I updated to the recent version but the problem was not fixed.

The setting of LogCaching is Power user default.
The setting Icon Overlays as shown below:
Status cache=Default
Include paths=limited to the minimum, a total of approximately 340,000 files.
Drive Types= all unticked.

For your information,
OS: Windows 7 Professional Service Pack 1.
Installed memory:16GB. While running “Check for modifications” it still has 12GB of free space.
CPU: Intel Core i7-2600 CPU @ 3.4GHz, and about 5% is used while processing.
HDD: I use D drive. The size of D drive is 1.33TB, with available capacity of 137GB.
Speed of reading and writing contiguous data: 70-90 MB per second.
Speed of random access per 4KB: 0.4-0.9MB/ second.
The health status is all good (according to CrystakDiskInfo diagnostic report) .

Could you please advise me how to resolve the issue?

I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Thank you for your time and assistance.

Best regards,
Ido Satoshi
