I have deleted the partition by error on a SATA harddisk under Windows 10 . So I run testdisk and it shows the following:
TestDisk 7.0, Data Recovery Utility, April 2015
Christophe GRENIER <firstname.lastname@example.org
Drive G: - 3000 GB / 2794 GiB
Please select the partition table type, press Enter when done.
[Intel ] Intel/PC partition
[EFI GPT] EFI GPT partition map (Mac i386, some x86_64...)
[Humax ] Humax partition table
[Mac ] Apple partition map
>[None ] Non partitioned media
[Sun ] Sun Solaris partition
[XBox ] XBox partition
[Return ] Return to disk selection
Hint: None partition table type has been detected.
Note: Do NOT select 'None' for media with only a single partition. It's very
rare for a disk to be 'Non-partitioned'.
So what should I do?

G: is a drive letter/a partition. If you have deleted a partition, it can't be G:.
You need to select the PhysicalDrive that was holding your deleted partition.
