Norton recycle bin

I have noticed an option 'Shred recycle bin' under the folder Norton recycle Bin.

Does this option removes the files permanantly from the hard disk ?

Yes, instead of just marking the space the files use for reuse whenever the hard drive needs it (therefore not actually deleting the file immediately, or sometimes at all) this Norton feature overwrites them using secure methods so that it cannot be recovered.
