Install HM in vmware from .ova - disk size

We've had to install a new instance of the HM in vmware, from the .ova file, but I'm not entirely sure at what point we set the available disk size. The ova wizard let us select the datastore and then the thick/thin provision but at no point were we given the option of disk size.

The eventual provisioned disk size it created was 65GB (we chose thin provision too), which we have increased to the recommended 256GB but during a previous issue with our old HM, we were told, by our service provider, that changing the provisioned disk size after it had been initially created, would not work; it had to actually be created/installed with 256GB. (Our previous problem was that the HM had originally been installed on a 70GB disk which was far too small)

Even though our new HM VM is now showing the 256GB we provisioned, are we going to run into trouble with it actually only using the 65GB it installed with?

Many thanks
