vCenter Converter Standalone: Cloning used partition instead of entire volume

I need to do a P2V conversion on a server, but I'd like to ideally only clone the used part of the server's hard drive. The server has a 146 GB hard drive, but only 20 GB of that is partitioned usable space. The remaining space is unallocated. vCenter Converter Standalone wants to clone the full 146 GB drive, however.

Is there some way to configure it to only clone the 20 GB partition?

You can select Thin provisioning or select drive size in vConverter, there is a drop down to re-size the disk.

use the Advanced Options, and select Volume to Copy, and you can specify what to clone.
