How to split a VMimage with harddrive defined as single file into usable 2GB files

A colleague of mine mentioned that there was a program from VMware that was able to split a VMimage's hard drive file into 2GB chunks (like the option during your image creation). Does anyone know more about this? I did a brief look on Google and on the VMware site but didn't find anything apparent and haven't had time to do any in-depth searching since I have a workaround for the issue at hand. However it would be very useful to be able to use this VMimage without it being in a single 47Gb chunk. Anyone know where this program is or if there is some other program that does a similar task?

Hi!
You can use the command line utility vmware-vdiskmanager that lives inside the directory where workstation is installed.
