Is it possible to restore a policy from the firewall back to the CP management console?

I accidentally deleted a policy from the Checkpoint Management Console (Checkpoint SmartDashboard).  The policy is still installed and I can open it by pulling it directly from the firewall.  How can I get it back into the management station so I can edit it and manage it.  I have policies installed and active but only did this to one of them...

Thanks!

Hi there,

Could you exaplin what you mean with "The policy is still installed and I can open it by pulling it directly from the firewall" -

Can you open this in the management interface or do you mean a rulebase file or what exactly are you pulling directly from the firewall?

Thnx
