Active SVN Working Folder is getting too big!

Our team uses the following versions:-
- TortoiseSVN 1.9.4, Build 27285 - 64 Bit
We have a single target SVN Repository stored on a Network location.
Our team members have Local Working development folders that we use to SVN Commit and SVN Update against this single SVN Repository.
As time has passed-by, number of our team members have also increased, which has resulted into the Local Working development folder to now be at about 10 GB.
When setting up a new PC for a new employee, the time that takes to "fetch" and pull the entire 10 GB contents from the SVN Repository onto the user's PC is in hours now.
We are thinking of perhaps, keeping the active working development folder lighter by performing yearly archiving exercise (on some folders while ignoring other folders from this date condition) - moving older content elsewhere and then deleting it from the active working development folder.
Are there any suggestions on how to address this? Any best practices such that it won't affect our team's day-to-day work significantly?
We do not want to create a new empty SVN Repository for every new year because we do not want to lose the history as well as there are some folders/files (code) that we always want it to be available regardless of the years passed.
