I don't think there is an NConvert option for that...

A workaround would probably be to use a batch file that first extracts all the pages using -xall, then deletes the particular page you wish to delete, and then creates a new multi-page TIFF file from the remaining pages using -multi with suitable compression options.

Do you have a copy of the NConvert help file?

I don't see any other way of doing it, unless maybe someone else has a suggestion... :?:

Is processing time the issue with large multi-page files, or are you concerned that the output file may have been modified in some other way, which I wouldn't think should be an issue?

Edit:

There might possibly be a utility available that can edit a TIFF file directly to remove a selected page or pages, possibly using the command line if that is what you need, if you Google something like 'edit tiff file "command line" '...
