You won't be able to without auditing turned on before the action happened.  I know that is not the answer you were hoping for.   If you are worried for the future you should enable auditing on the files/folders/server.

Thanks

totally agree with mkline71.
However in my experience auditing a server is not an easy task.  I turned it on for that same reason, but turned it very soon.  Do some reading, you may decide against doing it.
the mouse is our worst enemy, too easy to move a folder if you are not cautious.
The good news is that it can be moved back if someone notices it is gone.
