    It will take around 3 - 4 months to come to any conclusion if the disavowed exercise actually worked or not.

    Some of the sites aren't damaging. Any reason for dissavowing them?

    If you think some of the disavowed sites are legit, then delete the disavow file in google console.
    But playing with disavow file like that is not recommended and plus it will be slow either way.
    At least by deleting the file, you can see what happens, and take it from there.

    You can check the URLs/domains on Ahrefs or Semrush if they have a high spam score. If they have a low spam score then don't disavow them.

    Well for me i don't mind if the links came from high metric website.

    i use Moz to check the spam score.

    Low DA and low traffic are not great criteria for disavowing. If you're using DA it means you have access to Moz, so check the spam score there. Also look at trust flow & citation score from Majestic. Those are all much better indicators than DA and traffic.

    Also, even if you have a list of 10k spam domains, do not disavow all of them at once. Disavow a few of them at a time and build other links with Brand Anchors.
