 Can I regenerate CCP (and HTML) from CFMs?

I am fairly new to CodeCharge so I hope this isn't an elementary question.

I had a hard drive failure (and no usable backup) that contained my CCP files. I am trying to recover my CCP (and HTML) files from the CFM files already published to a webserver. Is there a way to do this?

I moved my files to a new computer and was working on the new machine for about 2 weeks and then the hard drive crashed. Now as I go back to my older machine I realize the CFMs can be easily FTP'd back to my local drive but the CCP and HTML files on the local machine are old. Can I "reverse engineer" these files from CFM only?

Thanks in advance.

I'm sorry to say that the meaning of the word backup takes on a new meaning :-) Your CFM files are good as custom code in your CCS app but thats taking things a bit too far. :-) Then again you can hand edit your CFM files and treat them as the app. I'm not privy to the inner workings of CCS but I think you're done. Sorry for the bad news.

Yep, I think you are out of luck.
You can start with those old ccs files and extract any custom logic you put in from the cfm files.

A great backup solution for a single developer or many developers is to
utilize the built-in CVS capability of CodeCharge. You can even
configure CVSNT (CVS server software for Windows) to run your
repositories from a flash drive (USB, SD card, etc.) if you don't have a
secondary computer available.
