    I am using PD 12.1.3 and installed Kali 2016.2 with all Parallel Tools.
    But the problem is the OS disk only occupies 12 GB but the Virtual HD occupies 30.2 GB.
    I tried the configuration manager Compress and reclaim free space all saying no more free space to claim.
    I to know just delete the .PVM and installing again. But I have almost set up all the tools that required. Any alternative way to resolve this???
    Please help me out to resolve this issue.

    You may try this:
    0. Shutdown VM.
    1. In VM configuration go to Hardware and for each Hard Disk enable "Real time virtual disk optimization".
    2. Boot VM and for each disk mount point call fstrim command. For example, if you have the whole disk mounted as a single volume, do
    $ sudo fstrim /
    3. Shutdown VM once again and disable "Real time virtual disk optimization" option on disks which where enabled on the step 1. If you don't do this it may decrease disk performance.
