It sounds like you're looking for a "sparse checkout", where you only
checkout some subset of the folders in a project.

(While it's possible to apply this at the file level as well, this
doesn't help with newly-added files; it's best to structure the project
such that you can ignore entire folders.)

Have a look at the "Choose Items" button in either the initial checkout
or when selecting TortoiseSVN -> Update to Revision on an existing
working copy.
