Currently, their private$ folder has unrestricted access to all employees that know how to get it.  The concern of managers is that it's not password protected.  Is moving to CIFS the only way to remedy this situation?

If you look under the security tab, you should be able to remove all users except the owner's ID. That would limit permission to the folder.

ty for responding rbarnhardt, however, because the folders are not in the root...i.e. it's like this on the NAS:

NAS created folder "private$"

users are as follows: "private$\john", "private$\david" etc.

all the users folders were created in the folder "private$" without using the NAS file/folder management...i.e. I "UNC'ed" to the \\192.168.1.5\private$ share and added users one at a time in there

Are you accessing from a Windows client? If so, then you will need CIFS to set permissions.
