To delete the zombie files, just through vSphere Client, select the datastore and click on Browse Datastore, navigate to the folder where the zombie files are stored and delete them (right click on the file and select detele). Of course, if you're not really sure about delete that files, you can first rename them or move to a new folder like TOBEDELETED and them wait some days before delete them definitively.

What do you get the total size of your virtual machines? And can you confirm if your virtual machines are not running from snapshots? Any chance you post a list of your virtual machines that include the disk space utilized? Another possible issue is the existence of zombie files, and you can use RVTools (RVTools - Home) to check if you have that zombie files.
