Create a new virtual disk and attach it to the VM. You may then want to move "/home" onto that new virtual disk. If you choose to do that, you will obviously have to mount the new disk at /home. HTH!
If I were you I would not set the swap to over 32gb, or else it gets even slower. There really is no way that I know of to just use them all as one disk, but if you set one as /, another as /home and possibly the other three just for data and have swap on one of the data ones then you will be golden for years to come. Or you could just look up how to set ...

You'll also need to do this from GParted on a Linux emergency disk. IMHO, a better solution, if you're willing to completely ...
