This kind of file structure is known as fragmentation. Having more fragmented files will result in a slower PC performance and affects system stability.
Disk Defragmenter helps improving system stability by reorganizing the files and replacing them as contiguous blocks. This makes programs work faster as the associated files are arranged closely together. Built-in Windows Disk Defragmenter checks the log file to determine frequently used programs and rearranges programs accordingly to reduce the time period during those programs start ups.
If you run your computer for more than 2 hours a day, it will be a wise idea to run Disk Defragmenter every week. If you have installed or uninstalled several programs at a time, then run Windows Disk Defragmenter immediately so that your PC can rearrange the files to provide maximum speed and stability.
