How to Monitor File Server of the company

I was asked to find a way to monitor changes (modification, renaming, deletion, moving) of files in specific folders on the company's shared file server (simple windows shared directory).
What I'd like to know now is how to find out the name/IP of the user/computer who made these changes. Any ideas?

You can try to enable auditing through native solution like GPO and AD settings either try some File Server Auditing solutions

I have tried native solution already afterward i decided to go for paid solutions as i am not getting desired result

In that case you can go for paid solution they will serve you better you can google it or with file server auditor solutions or you can test this tool as once we have gone through with it
