Where is the trash of ESXi 5 ?

Where is the trash of ESXi 5 ?
After I installed ESXi5, I found my space is less and less as virtual machine eats a lot. And I also deleted a lot big virtual machine file. but I think the deleted the big file are still in the C: drive. I have to delete it from C: drive. Anyone can tell me where is the trash ? In vmware station, it is easy to find its trash and delete it completely. ESXi5 has similar trash ?

Deleting files from the guest OS, windows in this case doesn't decrease the VMDK file size.  It's similar to a physical hardware, if you delete files from a pysical hard drive it will not make the hardware smaller.

What you can do is use VMWare Converter and do virtual to virutal migration of the VM if you have space.  In the process you can resize your virtual disks.
