Hi,

If you really feel you need to have entire repository checked out, you may
also use the GCC trick (which was mentioned in another thread recently):

Create an empty folder in your repository (named 'EMPTY', or something
like that), and then in your WC 'svn switch' all those folders that you do
not need to point to 'EMPTY'. For many folder it may take a while, but
after that your update should run much faster.

Cheers,
