Trim/unmap VMware Photon OS (64-bit)

We have 1 vm with VMware Photon OS (64-bit) installed.

It is using thin disks, and is only using 20% disk, but storage usage in vCenter says 100%.

Is it possible for Photon OS to Trim/Unmap like Linux and Windows?

If yes, how?

I don't thing Trim/Unmap will work. You can to do sVMotion as workaround.
