Can anyone explain to me how to use Tortoise to obtain this project?
That seems to be a Mercurial repository, so you'd have to use TortoiseHg, not TortoiseSVN.
Download and install TortoiseHg.
Create a directory somewhere with the name you want (e.g. google-api-java-client samples).
TortoiseHg > Clone...
On Source, copy paste the URL of the repository you want to clone, in your case https://code.google.com/p/google-api-java-client.samples/.
