Thin provisioning is a file system feature. What you see in the GUI is the provisioned disk size. If you want to see the used disk space you can run e.g. ls -lisa from the command line, which shows the used space in kB in the second column. Alternatively you may use the du command, e.g. du -h *-flat.vmdk
