Sometimes when you create a virtual machine with vmware you might decide to split the virtual disk into multiple splitparts of 2GB size. This enhance the copying process and sometimes the host file system does not support creating larger files of 2GB.

If you need to convert it back to a single file, there is a tool called vmware-vdiskmanager.exe. It can be used to manipulate a virtual disk, so we can use it to merge all split parts to a new single virtual harddisk. You will find this program inside the VMWare Workstation installation, usually in C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\VMware Workstation. Open a new CMD and use this command :

Code: [Select]
vmware-vdiskmanager.exe –r thefirstfile.vmdk –t 0 singlefile.vmdk
