Deleted folder from Windows 2012 shared folders

Last Modified: 2016-01-15
We lost a parent folder that contained a LOT of data, we can restore, but how can I tell what user did this and prevent this from happening again?

Our backup runs at 8:00PM and the folder was still there, as I see it in the backup, I definitely need to know now, as this was way after hours.

Windows 2012 R2 Server.
