I thought you'd have a System image backup along with your files by now. I don't know what you do to your installs, but no video converter install can cause the loss of a partition.

Run Partition Wizard Partition Recovery Wizard - Video Help.
Hopefully you didn't format over D as it won't recover then, but otherwise the Wizard will find it and allow you to undelete it.

Did you try uninstalling the Video Converter normally in Control Panel? If that fails System Restore to before it was installed.
