Cloudera VM is not releasing space on Windows once data is deleted inside the VM

Explorer

I have loaded 20 GB of Data in the BDA Lite VM because of which the size of BDA Lite disk file on Windows server increased by 20 GB.

 

But once I delete the files 20GB that space is not getting cleared and the size of BDA Lite disk files remain the same. (we have removed from the Trash as well )

Total occupied space by data : 1.4GB +6.3 GB+500MB = around 8GB

Actual space occupied by BDA Lite VM is around 130 GB.cl2.png

Appreciate if someone could help with a solution to recover unused space.
