Windows 2012 R2 -- Hard Drive USAGE tracking ?

What Hard Drive Storage USAGE tracking software
do you recommend so I can find out which USER
keeps adding more to my file server's
shared E drive ?

http://windirstat.info shows some info,
but I would like something like the below

Everytime a file gets saved in the E:\Users
directory that is NEW or has grown over 100MB
since the original size, display a report like below

Date, LoginUser, Location, Growth
  ** 9/24/15 @  9:20am, JohnDoe, E:\Users\JohnDoe\abc.doc, 150MB
  ** 9/25/15 @ 10:20am, BobSmith, E:\Users\BobSmith\123.xls, 450MB
  ** etc
==================================================
Example
  ** 9/20/15 = 200GB free of 500GB total
  ** 9/30/15 = 150GB free of 500GB total
==================================================
Below seems fine
      ** log files
      ** antivirus software
      ** Windows Updates & System Restore are disabled
      ** nothing new has been installed for 2+ years
      ** recycling bin is empty
      ** etc

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can use utilities like tree size to get folder size information. but why not just limit the user.

Create quotas and apply them to the shares.
Use FSRM..

Does https://redmondmag.com/articles/2014/10/08/file-server-resource-manager.aspx somehow allow me to get a report so I can see who is using the most RESOURES and who is doing NO adds / edits ?

Can I also setup something like "anytime a user add over 1GB new files per day" I get an automatic email/etc so I can try to find out what they are doing ?

Date, LoginUser, Location, Growth
   ** 9/24/15 @  9:20am, JohnDoe, E:\Users\JohnDoe\abc.doc, 150MB
   ** 9/25/15 @ 10:20am, BobSmith, E:\Users\BobSmith\123.xls, 450MB
   ** etc

Yes you can create file screens and setup email alerts with FSRM.

I read https://redmondmag.com/articles/2014/09/25/file-server-resource-manager.aspx, but do not see a way to run the below report.

Any ideas ?

Date, LoginUser, Location, Growth since last save if over 100MB
   ** 9/24/15 @  9:20am, JohnDoe, E:\Users\JohnDoe\abc.doc, 150MB
   ** 9/25/15 @ 10:20am, BobSmith, E:\Users\BobSmith\123.xls, 450MB
   ** etc
