I'd keep the repository seperate from the checked out files. Create a
folder for your repositories, like d:\svn, put your repositories in
subdirectories thereof and leave it alone.

If this is a personal web server, just check out site1 to
d:\wwwroot\site1 and site2 to d:\wwwroot\site2, using the checked out
files as live web page (makes testing easier by far). Otherwise, for a
production server, better check out to a seperate directory (eg.
d:\wwwroot\work\site1 and d:\wwwroot\work\site2) that can be
password-protected and do an export to the actual web page directories
whenever you've got a stable version done.
