i think you want to know if somebody access your folder... you have to do this:

1 - set Audit Object Access to success (or success and failure if you want) - Administrative tools\Local Security Policy\Local Policies\Audit Policy
2 - set auditory on the folder - folder properties\security\advanced\auditing -> add everyone with the type of access you want for success and failure

then you can see this in the security log of the event viewer.
