Excellent question and I think I can help. The NetWrix File Server Change Reporter does exactly what you are looking for, and even supplies a freeware version.
The NetWrix File Server Change Reporter audits all important file server changes. The tool sends daily reports about all changes to the file servers for your review, including changes made to files, folders, shares, and permissions with previous and new values of certain configuration values. This makes file server auditing extremely easy and efficient. The commercial version of this tool provides information about who made the change and when it occurred, including detailed information about permission changes, but the free version still notes all the changes. You can also use the daily reports as paper trail for many compliance auditors that you may have to report to.
I hope this helps,
