Note that SVN 1.7.x is not supported and you should plan an upgrade to the
latest SVN 1.10.x (LTS) or SVN 1.11.x (regular time-based release) builds.

I guess that it's not the only operation that is slow on the network share,
right? Please, upgrade your SVN client and try the same operation with the
exclusive locking option[1]. See SVNBook 1.8 about exclusive-locking
runtime configuration option[2].

Here is an example:
svn update --config-option config:working-copy:exclusive-locking=true
–set-depth exclude folderA
