    Its nothing to worry about, defragmentation is just a posh word for "sorting your messy computer into a nice order".

    You will never make your PC perfect, if it works fine then leave it that way. If it aint broken, dont fix it.

    It may have been that you had large files that were fragmented so it put them back together but in the process had to split more smaller files. So the percentage of files fragmented has increased but the actually size of fragmented areas will have dropped.
