Default Ignored assignments after upgrade to 30.3

After upgrading to version 30.3 some of the assignments on my cpu's are being ignored.

After the upgrade I merged checked cpu's to eliminate the "duplicate" cpu listed under the old software version. The older, partially completed assignments now appear under the single cpu as expected. However it appears that the assignments that were in progress before the upgrade, despite being visible in my assignment list for the cpu, are ignored. They are passed over for new assignments when the currently running assignment is completed. Is there a way to prioritize an assignment so it is the next to be run? Are they unrecoverable and should just be unreserved?
What am I missing?

Are the save files still on your computer? Are the exponents still in your worktodo.txt file?

Only the currently running exponent appears in the worktodo.txt file. (At least on the cpu I am writing from)
The only filenames I see in the directory with .bu or .residue extensions are for the currently running exponent.
Is there a way to recover the forgotten exponents, or have the cpu listings on the site display the status of what is currently running, rather than remain "hung" on the old assignments?

I still have the old v29.8 folder with the .bu files that appear to be for the "forgotten" exponent.
Would adding them to the current version folder and adding the line to the current worktodo.txt file from the older version allow the assignment to be recovered?

Yes. Copy all of the files that have a letter and numbers (with and without the .bu, starting with an m, p, f, or whatever and then the numbers) And use the area in https://www.mersenne.org/workload/ at the bottom for the specific CPU to restore the lines in your worktodo.txt
