vcsa 6.0 upgrade failed disk space

Our VCSA 5.5 to 6.0 upgrade fails due to lack of disk space in the 6.0 appliance.  Our VCSA 5.5 appliance has about a 400GB drive due to our logging and retention needs.   When we try to upgrade to VCSA 6.0 it fails due to running out of disk space.   How can we upgrade?  It would be nice if in the installer we could specify the disk space needed before the upgrade starts.

Do you use embedded database(PostgreSQL) on your 5.5 appliance or external Oracle?

Didn't you get estimates by the wizard how much disk space you're going to need on the destination?

Excessive vCenter Server database size is usually caused by historical data, e.g. statistics and events.

You should consider reducing statistics, events and tasks data before rerunning the upgrade: kb.vmware.com/kb/2110031

no I didnt get an estimate, I did not run out of actual disk space on my NFS just inside the appliance, it looks like when you pick small/medium/large deployment it only formats the new appliance disk to a certain size.  That disk in the new upgraded appliance ran out of space.  Even if I picked the largest deployment size there was not enough disk space available.  What would be great is if you could specify disk size during the upgrade process then this would not be an issue.
