Certificate LOR soft copy waived or ve not waived?

I did a couple of rotations in US durin jan - april last year, n I got a couple of LORs which are as a soft copy which I had asked then coz I wasnt sure if they would remember me a year later wen I asked for a LOR. so now wen I request them to send the lor to ecfmg via this LWP, should I mark as waived or not waived? Ve read it a lot of times on this forum dat its good to waive your right, and I really do, but will it it b possible with this case???

I mean there s no guarantee that they would send the same lor right??

Actually speaking,if u see the content,its not waived any more.But,through LWP if mark it as waived your letter writer accepts it and sends it as waived,it is considered as waived.But, mostly they wont as they had already given u a acopy.First confirm with your letter writer.

And one more thing,,That letter should be uploaded by the letter writer ,not u
