I dual-booted with Windows a while ago. Now I want to delete Windows (already did it) and make elementary take the rest of the hd without having to reinstall the system.

  • so what's the problem?

  • I think he wants to add whatever the windows partition was using to his elementary OS partition without reinstalling his elementary OS

  • I think there's no problem doing that. haven't done it in a while, but I think there's no problem to resize a petition using gparted or any other partition tool

I think it should not be a problem.

here's one link how to live resize main partition

I'm sure there are easier ways to do it with gparted or similar software (haven't done it myself in a while)

Or you can just mount it as a separate partition and use it for data storage.
