Have you followed the HowTo? Expecially configuring the permissions on 
the share on windows.

If you setup the right permissions, then the users can only access their 
own folder and no other on the share. There are several best practice 
HowTos on the internet for the home dir share permissions, I guess.

Maybe it's enough to simply remove the group or everyone from the ACLs 
of the share.
