    If you just squish things together again, the next time one of your existing files has to grow, for whatever reason, that file will automatically get fragmented again (if it needs enough space to require a new cluster, that is.)

    As long as you have at least one large block of free space, and a very low percentage of fragmented files, you'll be OK.

    The only time when it's actually a good idea to compact everything together and leave all the free space at the end is when you're going to resize the partition (shrinking it) as in that case, the shrinking process will be simpler.
