Will a C:\drive with 5% free space be slower than one with 25% free space?

I have a Hyper-V with two VM , one being Windows Essential and the other the RDS server which runs all the programs. It currently has 5% of free space left. I can add more free space. Would it be more efficient and run better if it has more free space?

Also, if you extend a hard drive, will that make any different to the backup you have prior to that?
