When converting my NEFs to dng, one of the photos changed to the photo next to it in the sequence. I have tried rebuilding the preview but it still is the same as the previous image.
Here is a quick screen capture. When I click on the image in question, it briefly flashes the original photo, then reverts to the wrong image. I was able to quickly capture how the image should look before it changed. If you look at the bottom film strip, you will see the version it changes to. I would really like to figure out how to get this image back.
I can go into time machine to find it, but I find that this happens frequently in Lightroom. Usually I restart lightroom and the problem corrects itself.
A strange one!
I do not even see the large & navigator image in the 14 filmstrip photos! Where is it coming from?
One suggestion- Your Previews cache may have become corrupted, You could delete the Previews.LRDATA folder and allow Lightroom to re-build the Previews. (May take some considerable time with a large catalog- overnite?)
You will find the .LRDATA cache/folder next to the catalog location. Do NOT delete the .LRCAT catalog file.!!

I know, weird, right? I will try your suggestion maybe this weekend. I did use time machine to find the file and re-imported it. Of course it's the one the client wanted! Murphy's law of lost files. Time Machine saves the day!
