Used Aqua Soil

I have some old aqua soil which i have used in an earlier tank then dried it up and place it in storage. Are there any major downside to using it again?

It depends on how long it was in use, and how clean you kept it, as well as whether or not you crushed a major portion of the little pieces. Aquasoil does run out of some nutrients eventually, especially nitrogen, but you can always dose the water to take care of that.
