Yes. Auditing will tell you who did what and when.

On the folder or file you want to audit, right click and choose Properties. Go to the Security tab-page and click Advanced. On the Advanced Security Properties you should see the Auditing tab-page.

You need to decide beforehand WHAT you want to audit. The following MS link is a good guide.

One thing to remember is NOT to audit everything as the log file can grow out of your control.
