    Accepted Solution

    If you have auditing of logon/account logon enabled the details of the username/password and time will be recorded in the security log. If Object Access auditing is enabled and the folders are configured for auditing then the file/folder access will be recorded also.

    Assisted Solution

    As requested:

    -Event Log
    -If you have auditing of security events enabled, then that's a possibility
    -If this is a 2003 machine with TS, then their session may still be listed in the "Users" tab of Task Manager if they didn't log off properly
    -Firewall logs - if you have a firewall which logs accesses then this would be a route to explore
