Default How much Trial Factoring to do?

Hello All,

I've been assigned some exponents in the 50M range to be LL tested. They were Trial factored up to 2^68 and P-1 factored and not factors found.

Would it make sense to manually assign the exponent to be Trial factored up to 2^70 just to make sure it does not have any low factors and then LL test it if it does not?

It takes about 18 hours to Trial factor one increment like from 2^68 to 2^69 so 36 hours to go from 2^68 to 2^70 and it takes 25 days to LL test.

Please tell me if this would be a waste of time.
