Iv heard other people say file one side only. I think the idea is to keep the edges straight as possible and not to remove the protective coating.

A gap is a gap, I think people believe that filling only one side will make the edges grow uneven.

Your gap might be offset a little compared to filling both sides but the gap will be the same size.
