Can you delete the unused partition and then extend the C:/ or just allocate the unassigned space a drive letter and use it as a seperate drive. Not sure if you can just move the recovery drive to the end. I'll leave that to some one else to advise!

No the 20gb of unused space. Delete it. But not sure if you can.

I believe you can with https://www.easeus.com/partition-manager/epm-free.html but not sure how/if it'll work with it being a VM. Clone the VM to en external hdd and find out.

 

That was my initial thought. But wasn't sure how it worked in a VM. Not sure how partións are stored within the vmx file?

Yeah, that's why i suggested cloning the vm so if it does get hosed, at least they don't lose anything.
