NFS Volume Space not reclaimed after Storage vMotion

My appologies if this has been addressed before.


I have an NFS volume on my FAS2240 that does not reclaim disk space when I move a VM off via Storage vMotion.  All other volumes do.


For Example:

Move 40GB VM from Saphire_Datastore to Gold_Datastore.


Volume free space prior to move:

Saphire - 108GB     Gold - 328GB


Volume free space after move:

Saphire - 108GB      Gold 290GB


I am relatively new to both VMware and NetApp storage, so I am unsure what direction to take.  I have looked online, but most of the leads I have located relate to deleting VMs or reclaiming snapshot space.
