Merge splitted disk into a single disk

SOURCE: https://vmexpo.wordpress.com/2014/04/15/how-to-merge-multiple-vmdks-into-single-vmdk/comment-page-1/

Sometime you got OVA with multiple splitted disk. But I still prefer one big disk because easier to backup.

Here how to do that with VMware Workstation

-cd to your target vm disk location
c:\>cd C:\Users\user1\Documents\Virtual Machines\OWASP
>dir
