If you installed the command line option when you installed tortoise svn from a command line you would cd to your development root and use the a command like...

svn co http://myserver/svn/path workingcopyfoldername

The working copy is generally 2x the size of the files in it, since the .svn folder contains the pristine copies of your working copy. This is how svn can do diffs against changed items In your working copy without hitting the server, and also how it can do reverts.

That's unfortunate. Are you able to at least tell it to ignore your development root folder. We have corporate virus software too, but I am allowed to exclude folders, so I exclude c:\users\bob\development. Virus Software can really mess up svn and cause perf issues.
