If you use WinRAR, there's a "Repair archive" option under the "Tools" menu, you should try that first and see if any files can be recovered (if the archive only has one file, then this is unlikely to help, unfortunately).

You could also try a tool like this:

Remo Repair RAR Software - Advanced Tool to Repair Corrupt / Damaged RAR Archive

Use the demo version to evaluate just what can be repaired, and if it's capable of getting back the file you need, then you might have to buy the full version to actually fix the file.

Do you use WinRAR application? If not, you should try it once. It supports a built-in repair feature that can repair RAR file. You can download free version of WinRAR application from the Internet. Hope the information would be helpful here.

Thanks and best regards.

No tool can really repair a corrupt file. Though some excellent data recovery tools are available in the market, but they can only recover what is left there in the file. If any bit is corrupt/damaged, it's gone for sure. You can't get it back until unless you have a valid backup for that.

Note: Avoid facing data loss situations due to corruption or accidental deletion. Take backup of your data regularly.
