How to fix this situation in Lightroom

I'm not sure how this happened. But it may have been related to a hard drive failing and having to point the files to a restored location. These two thumbnails both are for the same file. One was created by using the Create Virtual Copy. When I pointed another photo (neither of these two) to the restored folder, the first one was resolved, but the second one wasn't. If I click the exclamation point to point that one to the file, I get an error that says that the file is associated with another photo in the catalog and that each file can be associated with only one photo.

Interestingly, several other photos in the same shoot were handled the same way but do not have this issue (both copies were connected).
