You would have needed to have Auditing enabled...

Auditing is only available on NTFS volumes. Follow the instructions below:

Start Explorer
Right click on the file/directory you want to audit, and from the context menu select properties
Select the Security tab and click Auditing
If you have selected a directory, check the "replace auditing on subdirectories"
Click the Add button and add the user(s) who you wish to audit by selecting and clicking Add. When finished adding users, click OK
Select the events you wish to audit and then click OK (ref: http://www.winnetmag.com/Article/ArticleID/14761/14761.html)

You could determine this in the future by checking your security logs in Event Viewer...
