I read the OP intend more as a "sparse update"

Perhaps "check for modifications" + "Check repository" can be used to
achieve what the OP wants

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.

Message Hello,

Sometimes, while I update a large project, I notice that several heavy
files were committed by other members of my team, and are important for
the project in its entirely, however these files are not required for my
job, and can dramatically slow down my update.

Is there a way to ignore them? If not I suggest the adding of a skip
button on the update form. I joined a small screenshot showing the idea.
Also, a skipped file should be downloaded only if required, or in a
background thread (if possible)

What do you think about the idea?

Regards,
Jean-Milost Reymond
