Well, yes, I used snapshots and ProxMox use snapshots too when backuping VMs but these snapshots are released once process is finisehd so why would it remains uncleared data ? 

If I understand well, your recommendations in order to clear up the whole cluster is to backup my VDIs then clear data en re-import ... that's what I was thinking ... just hopped there would have been a clever and faster way to clean things. 
Well, I'll do that when I can. 

Thanks anyway.

Were you using snapshots in the past? Or is proxmox using snapshot for 
backups or something else?

You may try this: 
- export a single vdi so you have a backup 
- delete this vdi 
- check if there are still objects in the cluster with its id [1] 
- if there are not, then import the backup 
- repeat the procedure for each vdi when you have time 

as an example, vdi vm-1040-disk-1 has the id 1c693b 
dog vdi delete vdi vm-1040-disk-1 
find /your/object/folder -name "*1c693b*"
