It will be in the Security log, provided that auditing has been set up and enabled for the directory in question. Auditing file access is resource intensive, and it is usually left disabled.

Until you have set up auditing, you will not see anything.

Here are some basic instructions.

You first will need to turn on auditing, from either local policies, or domain policies and apply it to the machine you want to audit. Once the policy is set you need to configure auditing on everything you want to audit, and that will start adding events to the event log.
GPEDIT:
Computer Configuration --> Windows Settings --> Security Settings --> Local Policies --> Audit Policy --> Audit object Access

Once you have enabled auditing for file server, you may see the changes in event viewer. Please refer to this blog
