    ​RAR file is corrupt

    It took me a good enough time to download this heavy RAR file which is about 3GB but to my utter shock it came out to be corrupted.
    I am no tech but I can follow as step by step solution if anyone can provide in an easy manner. I have already search over lot of internet pages but I couldn't actually relate to that typically technical language.

    Can anyone give a comprehensive guide to fix my RAR file or if there is any tool that I can use but it should be more automated.
