I'm affraid that post-festum you will not be able to do that. You would need to already monitor your servers using auditing.

one way to narrow it down is if you go to event viewer and security and see who has logged in. that might give you a hint or point you to a direction.

Agreed with the above.

I'd also suggest you start securing the files so that only authorized people have access to files... if they don't need access, put them in a shared folder they don't have access to!

I think you need a complete monitoring software which will monitor all the activities happening in you SQL Server ,exchange server and active directory also and give a report for the same .
In case you can try this out
Windows event log management

Keep Updating us !

If you didn't enabled auditing on your server you will have no data you need in logs - so even Event Log Manager will not help you.
Event Log Manager is just a tool that shows what is written in event logs in different way...
