My Smart Center machine crashed, I lost everything and I need to reinstall Smart Center software

I have a typical CheckPoint Firewall configuration version R55-AI working in a Windows environment, with separate gateway and Smart Center machines. The second badly crashed (HD fault) and i lost everything on it (security policy, objects, etc.). Luckily the gateway machine is working normally. I reinstalled OS, Smart Center and now I have a worrying empty Smart Console. Can I recover security policy, objects and everything else I need from the gateway, and bring them back again onto Smart Center machine as before the crash? If it's possible, how can I manage this delicate operation? I am talking about a working environment, so I need not to create any faults on system.
Thank you in advance for any suggestions.
