Hey, as of typing these lines i´m currently booting a ~240gb vmdk image from synology nas (samba) which is split into multiple 2gb files. I can do that because it´s taking: a) ages to load b) even longer to modify the settings while it´s not running i assume that one of the problems is that it´s split into multiple files (that was the only setting vmware offered me while creating a vm out of this box). so what i´m wondering is: is there any way to merge them back into a big one? or would that be senseless anyway? would be very thankful for any kind of support.
