In "Disks" (as in your picture), if you click the button with the 2 little cogs on it, there should be an option to "Resize".

I can't offer much more than that as I've never tried resizing a partition in a statically allocated VM .. I usually choose dynamically allocated VM's in VBox.

I'd advise you clone the VM first (them operate on the clone) .. so if anything goes wrong, you still have the original to fall back on.
