Book Conversion via Calibre Failed

Hi!
I just downloaded Calibre yesterday and been trying to use the conversion to increase font size of my ebooks. However, after conversion, the book is nowhere to be found and I was left with 2 covers of the book. Anybody knows what's going on?

Thanks in advance!

If you have the book in the format you are converting to open in a viewer it will give an error but still delete the book.

No I don't have the book open in a viewer so I really don't know what's wrong

I don't know either.
I would try to convert to another format such as .lit and see what happens there
Also I have seen advice suggesting running calibre in debug mode for different things although I haven't tried it.

Since what you're experiencing is not normal and no one else has popped up with a "me too" we need to find out where the error lies. Walk us through the what and how of how you are trying to convert the books step by step.
