Default Finishing expired LL test

In 2012 I had installed prime95 on a windows8 machine.

I checked out from primenet four exponents for first LL-test, and never finished (switched to linux)

Today I started windows again, and this are the percentages done I can see

53027963 (71.86%)
59181203 (55.57%)
60643613 (45.13%)
56841431 (25.86%)

For example:

I can see my assignments exponents expired in primenet, where assigned to others who did finish the LL-test (turned all of the composite, I would be sad I was so close to find a mersenne prime!). And now they show up as if I had a DD assigned.

That is because now a LL test was already done, isn't it? Because I had a first LL check assigned, but it mutated into a DD when other finished the LL test first. Am I right?

When I go to My account->CPU, I can see that computer, but nothing shows in the columns Current Exponent, Stage, Expected, etc. But the computer now is doing the LL loop from where it left.

If I let the computer finish these LL loops, will I have credit for the DD? Or would be better to cancel it and change it to do TF? It would be a pity to loose the work already done, I'm not sure if I should let it finish.

Yes, you will get the same amount of credit for the double check as you would have for a first-time LL test. It doesn't matter if it expired, you'll still get credit when it completes. And every exponent needs an eventual double check, so it's necessary and useful work.

You’ll get double check credit if you let them finish.
