Hi

You can do this is server 2008 with file and folder auditing.
A simple step by stel is written here.

Once in place the security logs will tell you who has accessed the share and/or files.

I agree with Patricksr1972, setup auditing and you will find it in the security log.

If I don't add user in Auditing, it will not show anything in security log?
