Split vmdk into two vmdk

I have a VMguest running Windows with a C: and D: located in one vmdk.  I would like to split up the vmdk so that c: and d: can have their own vmdk file.  I believe I can do P2V or Gpart but checking to see if there are other methods beside P2V or Gpart.

Check the video here I created earlier, and you can see the process.

Yes, you can do that, or just simply add a virt disk to the VM, then format it in disk mgmt. Copy the data to the new volume (E: presumably), then remove the D: partition. You can then change the new volume from E: to D: if you'd like.
So is copying data :) Will take about the same time...matter a preferance I think...
