epub to azw3 (or mobi) conversion error

I have encountered a problem in attempting to convert the book Our Mathematical Universe by Max Tegmark from an epub file to an azw3 file. This is the detailed error message Calibre throws, it happens immediately:

Quote:
calibre, version 1.21.0
ERROR: Unhandled exception: <b>IOError</b>:[Errno 13] File is open in another process: u'c:\\documents

I have converted a number of books in the past, both epub → azw3 (or mobi) and azw3 (or mobi) → to epub. This is the first time I have encountered this problem. I can view the book using the Calibre viewer so I don't believe it is a DRM issue. Also I receive the same error message if a attempt a epub → mobi conversion. Also as is apparent from the file path in the error message the epub file in question is synced with my Dropbox account in the cloud. I don't see why this should be an issue as it has never been a problem before. There is no reason any other process should be using the file when I attempt the conversion.

Thank you that worked. Something I should have thought of , but I had never encountered that as an issue in prior conversions.
