Question Repeat applicants; Transfer of documents from last year

Hi guys.
I need help.
Can anyone of repeat applicants tell me how long generally it takes until ERAS support services at ECFMG send your application documents from previous year (LORs, MSPE, medschool transcripts) to ERAS and it appears in your myERAS application.
My problem is that I registered my ERAS token late, at 14 September for some reason.
I was so inattentive that didn't read that it takes some time until they transfer documents from previous year to ERAS office, I thought it would be done automatically, as my documents were already in ECFMG from previous year. Only then I learned that ERAS receives those documents within 14 days. I'd like to know if some repeat applicant has recently registered their token, lets say during the last 10 days, does anyone of you already have those documents in your ERAS application.
It's a big problem, as last year due to LORs and CS result I postponed applying to very late time, had no interviews last year, and now I encountered this stupid problem, because of which I again postpone my applying. Please help, I would like to know, may it happen that they will send and I will have them in ERAS earlier, let's sat in 5-6 days.
Thank you.
