Yesterday I imported 465 photos of an event. Today I had one of them have a broken preview picture. This has only happened once before (but the current year) and I'm wondering what causes this?



I'm using OS X 10.11.5 and Lightroom CC 2015.6.1.

EDIT: The file is fine (looking via Finder). But on Lightroom it looks corrupted and exports corrupted.TallennaTallenna

the raw file might be corrupted.

first try to import this raw file again as it could be a problem with the usb link. it happened to me in the past and it was an issue with the usb connector/port.

other wise it might was written corrupted on the memory card.

I opened the file in Finder with Preview.app and it seems the file indeed to be corrupted. I suppose Finder Quicklook and Photo Mechanic showed the JPEG preview, not the actual RAW file.

Now I wonder at which point has this RAW file corrupting be happening? Has Lightroom to do with it?

Anyway, thanks Assaf for the help!
