comment Can a file that was originally sparse and expanded be made re-sparse
GNU cp will resparse a file: From the man page: Specify --sparse=always to create a sparse DEST file whenever the SOURCE file contains a long enough sequence of zero bytes.

comment Can a file that was originally sparse and expanded be made re-sparse
The only thing that can do this from all I've seen is a GNU 'cp', as in '% cp --sparse=always formerly-sparse-file newly-sparse-file' The detractor is it will not do it 'in-place'.
