Reduce size of k1000 WMDK

Hi, my k1000 is thin provisioned and is only using 113GB but the size of the VMDK is 1TB. Its never used more than this so no idea why its 1TB as its is thin provisioned. Has anyone got any wisdom on how I can reduce the size of the disk?

verify that it is really fully bloated. Normally it should be only the max size ever used (and if you used it once max this can happen)
If you have a vmware cluster use storage vmotion to move it to another datastore and choose thin provision as target.
