Problems getting samba share to block users

I've set my smb.conf file up in the following way:

path = /archive
comment = Archive drive
create mode = 0777
valid users = jbloggs,fsmith,rjohnson
writeable = yes
public = no

No matter what I do though - anybody can access this share via Windows.
Why is this? All the users are set up as samba users and can already
access a share drive. I just want to block access to this archive drive
for certain users!

Many thanks in advance
