Default hard disk: avail 0 capacity 100% is it fine to use it like this?

in my new drive (for wich http://www.daemonforums.org/showthread.php?t=3422) I've made a special partition for a huge file I want to keep by itself and mount ro to avoid stupid mistakes and loose a 100G file with a "rm *" ).
I probably did some miscalculation, and the size is very tight. Windows copied the big file fine, and then complained there was no space left and did not put in there a 3+ M file. I compressed the file, which went down to < 1M and it could be copied.
Now I have this with df:
/dev/sd0i      100G   95.1G      0B   100%
Is it fine to leave it like this? The raw file sizes (the ones in parenthesis) of the original and the copied files under Windows are the same, so the file seems to be there.
But is it fine to run a partition full like this or does it need some free space to work properly? (I remember Windows claiming something like 15% free space to do defragmenting, if I'm right you don't need that on unix, but maybe there something I don't know) (oh well, there's a lot I don't know).
