I copied my names.nsf from a 8.5.3 client to a 8.5.2 client and got a 'RRV bucket is corrupt' error. Unfortunately, I did not backup the 8.5.2 names.nsf first. How do I create a fresh names.nsf file so I can export and import my contacts? I am not sure why my company wants me to downgrade my software, but that is a separate matter. Thank you.
