The only thing you can do is restore from backup or re-create the file from scratch.

There is nothing that will "fix" a corrupted graphics file.

If you *really* need to recover this file, you can use a hex editor to recreate the tif header. If I remember correcly, the header is stored at the end of the file, and contains tags that describe the image data. Here's a link to a site about the TIFF format.

Caveat: This will not be fun. Even if you manage to restore the header so that it will open, there's no guarantee that the image data is corrupted also. If that's the case, I think it's toast.
