With TortoiseSVN you can check out any portion of any repository to
almost any place on your workstation in order to create a working copy
(WC). You can do that multiple times to create multiple WCs, each of
which is bound to the particular repository from which the WC was
created on initial checkout, but each WC can be bound to a different
repository.

For example, you browse in Windows Explorer (WE) to D:\Work\MyWCs (a
plain directory). You then use the right-mouse-button to check out,
say,
  a) http://mysvnserver/svn/repos1/trunk/projectX
     to D:\Work\MyWCs\ProjectX
  b) http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/trunk
     to D:\Work\MyWCs\SubVersion
  c) http://mysvnserver/svn/repos2/trunk/projectY
     to D:\Work\MyWCs\ProjectY

Where http://mysvnserver/svn/repos1/ is one repos on "mysvnserver",
http://mysvnserver/svn/repos2/ is an *independent* repos on the same
server, and http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/ is the public SubVersion
project repos.

Later on, you could switch so that
  c) http://mysvnserver/svn/repos2/trunk/projectY
     to D:\Work\MyWCs\ProjectY
becomes
  c) http://mysvnserver/svn/repos2/branches/projectY-3.2.1
     to D:\Work\MyWCs\ProjectY

i.e. you are working on a branch of projectY which was created at some
point by
svn copy http://mysvnserver/svn/repos2/trunk/projectY
     http://mysvnserver/svn/repos2/branches/projectY-3.2.1

Hope this helps...
