Has anybody ever figured out what happened to the disk of the Retribution campaign. I have looked tirelessly for them, but was never able to find a copy of the campaign.

What I do know is that it is an authorized expansion pack to StarCraft: Brood War, published in 1998 by WizardWorks Software, independently from Blizzard Entertainment, and authorized by Blizzard as an expansion pack. Retribution works within the limits of the original StarCraft game engine, and does not add any explicitly new content to the game, although it does contain over 120 new multiplayer maps, and a large single-player campaign.

Retribution supposedly contains new single player missions in the form of plot-centered campaigns for each of the 3 races (protoss, terran and zerg). Several new heroes were also added to the game, complete with custom voice-acting. Like in the original StarCraft, these heroes are only accessible during certain single-player missions. Also included is new music and sound effects to further enhance the single-player experience.

An ancient artifact called the Argus Stone has been found on the terran world of Aridas. All three races converge upon the planet in order to acquire the artifact, as it is believed that whoever controls the stone will be able to control the universe.

The campaign is set after the creation of the Terran Dominion but before the death of the first Overmind, so I think that would be around the time of Episode 2 of the original StarCraft.

Does anybody know what happened to it? I figured it was just lost to the internet since its popularity never went far, but it seemed very interesting to me... Well, at least more interesting than StarCraft: Insurrection and I have a copy of that, at the very least.

Compulsive hoarding and a large NAS.

I am not sure what you mean by a "NAS" per se, but I thank you for the file. Although there is one problem... I can't open the file because it is kinda blocking me with the 7z extension and I don't know what program opens it. Can you tell me what program opens a 7z archive extension?

WinRAR and 7-Zip will both open it. I recommend the latter over the former.
