I need help in understanding an IIS (W3SVC1) log file.

The log file below references directories that used to be hosted on this server over a year ago.  The logs are from today though.  And these were simple directories that are now hosted on a different server that is not running IIS.  In fact, I have no idea on why these directories would even be mentioned in an IIS log.

Can anyone help explain what would make the generatorrepairdb, g5135 and specs directories appear as they do in an IIS log?

These are webdav requests, it would seem something somewhere on your network is requesting them. Could be a file sharing program, sharepoint something like that still has a reference to them.
