    When assessing storage of large amounts of film, it's the volume of material that matters.

    The volume is the same for one roll regardless of whether the negatives are side by side or stacked.

    The only volume that would be reduced is that taken up by the sleeving.

    They are not stuck together, or "ruined" but I would have been happier if they had been in their own sleeves.
    Man, that's not a sleeve problem, that's a hygiene problem. The solution to your spoons sticking together in the drawer isn't to lay them next to each other instead of stacking them.

    The volume of a sleeve is several times the volume of a roll, which means that reducing their number has a dramatic impact.

    While I can see this being a problem in humid areas... this is South Australia. Driest state in the driest continent.

    No, but you can pick up some nice scratches on the negatives.

    I wouldn't do it. Too much risk of things mentioned already. How much is a great shot worth vs some storage material?
