Angela, I have saved terabytes of images with Gimp and it never destroyed anything. I'm not discounting there could be an obscure bug in that area but it is much more likely that you have a hardware or filesystem problem that hit you when you saved the file (how full is you disk?), so assigning culpability early isn't going to help and may prevent you from from identifying the real source of the problem, that could hit you again when using some other software.
When I work hours on something really important (be it an image, some text document, or a piece of code) I save regularly and copy the successive versions to a USB key. This is my defense against software bugs, hardware problems, and brain lapses.
Your file, as attached, is 12KB so it likely doesn't contain anything of interest, unless you were doing a very small image.
