There are lots of programs that allow you to recover corrupted rar files. I recommend you a Recovery Toolbox for RAR


1) Open the WinRAR application. Click on “File” and then “Open Archive” and browse to the damaged RAR file. 

2) Press “Alt” + “R” on your keyboard. This will bring up the WinRAR repair dialog screen. 

3) Designate an easy-to-find location in the “Folder to put the repaired archive” box. 

4) Check the box that says, “Treat the corrupt archive as RAR.” 

5) Press the “OK” button. Once it has finished repairing, a new archive will be built and placed in the location you designated.

    The most common solution to that problem is downloading the file again.

    It might not be a way to fix it.  It could even be incomplete.

    A few 3rd party softwares r there, but they r all expensive/ u have to purchase it, though it is 100% ok that is not guaranteed. If ur job/ frequently download rar files then u can go for buy. Else if  it is case for some/ few rar files, then do as suggested earlier.
    At least one try u can do, open winrar (version must be latest) right click the mouse & select repair archive if winrar allows to select the .rar file.
