If there are no proxies configured then veeam server takes the role of a proxy. The number of disks that can be processed concurently is defined by "max concurrent tasks" variable in proxy settings (1 disk = 1 task). So you can have multiple disks processed by a single proxy, but you should keep in mind that your proxy has to have enough resources (CPU, RAM) in order to successfully process disks in parallel. Also there is a possibility that your production storage might become a bottleneck due to inability to server that much reads.There is only one Veeam server, no proxies
Unfortunately, the only way to do that is to create another spanned 4Tb drive and copy all data from a single 4Tb drive.does anyone know of a method of splitting a large 4TB vmdk=single disk in Windows, into multiple smaller vmdks= spanned disk in Windows??

As you've correctly pointed before - that can be explained by inability of multiple proxies to perform parallel processing on a single .vmdk. Please post you bottleneck statistics so we can make sure that it's proxy what makes the backup process slower.The one that is still multiple vmdks takes considerably less time
