If it was a admin share (C$, D$ etc.), then only an admin can use them.
If it is a self-made hidden share (share$ or the like), you determine the access privileges. See in your Security Event Log for logins from other machines.

All access to your PC is logged. I don't know if you see additional info about specific shares, but as said, only admins can use them, so the amount of people being able to copy data should be nearly zero.

Windows logs if you access the machine. It does not log which share, file or folder, though.

Again, and again: If you see someone using your account from a different machine, you've found the culprit.
if everyone has admin access, it is your fault, and nothing will reveal who has misused that.

"Was" - no. You can't get logs from the past, not having used file auditing or 3rd-party apps. The action of copying a file leaves no trace, until you say to log that (= auditing).
