Samba [homes] dir problem

I have a raid partition mounted to /data. My samba's homes and public paths are set to /data/home and /data/public. I put all the created users in a group called data, then I did:
chmod 770 /data
chmod 770 /data/public
chmod 770 /data/home
All the users have their own directories in home, but my problem is when I log into say the user 'office' and store a bunch of files in its own directory under home, the user 'family' also has those files in his directory. How can I make it so users don't share, or so it seems, one dir?
