The convert worker will crash when exceeding 2GB (at least, at the time when I last used the 32-bit version). I do not know if Kepubify manages memory differently and can convert any EPUB book no matter the size without using more than 2GB.
Kepubify should work a lot better, as it is made to be as efficient as possible. I have quite a few books which Calibre hangs on while converting, but in kepubify, they convert in about 20 seconds. Kepubify also uses less memory in my experience.

If you have any issues with memory, I'd love to see the book, as I've not had any books use more than 40mb to convert.
