SPMT Can we remove some tasks from saved migration before incremental migration

When running an incremental migration from a saved one, is it possible to remove previous tasks?

Moving files from a decent amount of users.

If some users come up late with a demand requiring an Incremental, I am curious if running the saved migration only for some users / not all would be possible.
It probably requires messing with the migration files.

The fix I would apply would be to do just run a new migration for those users covering the wanted duration, but I would like to know, and probably will at some point, if given enough time.

Would be great if someone already knew about this.

    Hi @Boris P ,

    After a migration task has completed, you can save it to be rerun at a later date, allowing you to copy only those new or updated files in the source location. If you wish to make changes to this setting, do so before your initial migration job is submitted.

    Important:

    We strongly recommend that you do not rename or move migrated files before the final migration has been completed. Doing so will result in files being overwritten.
