[Flac-dev] Compression of existing FLAC files

Hope you can help,

I'm quite new to this, so...

I got a Squeezebox 3 and started ripping with Easy CD-DA Pro 
to FLAC, and set compression to 0 in the ignorant belief that 
compression might degrade the file. Now I've got over a Tb of 
files that I plan on migrating to larger drives. 
In the process, I'd like to apply an appropriate level of compression.

Is there a tool and procedure I can use to accomplish this? 
I've seen various scripts, but haven't tackled script-running, 
so would really like to work with a GUI, even if I have to pay.

Also wondering about how a system like SB works with the newer 
protocols of FLAC... Is it automatic or handled with their 
upgrades, or what?

Thanks for your help with this, please be as detailed as possible... 
there's a lot I don't know!
