High CPU caused by TortoiseSVN process TSVNCache.exe


The TortoiseSVN process "TSVNCache.exe" constantly occupies the CPU.


This is because TortoiseSVN is scanning your entire file system to update its internal cache.

This can be simply fixed by doing the following:

1. Right-click on any folder, and navigate to TortoiseSVN --> Settings --> Icon Overlays

2. Under "Exclude paths", set it to c:\*

3. Under "Include paths", include all folders in which your SVN code exists

Applicable Versions:
  • TortoiseSVN 1.6.6
