Hi Jennifer, thanks for the reply:
Honestly, I don’t have air conditioning in my apartment and it can get quite hot and muggy in here. A/C is just too expensive for me right now. And after a few hours, the fan on my Drobo starts getting quite loud as it tries to cool down.
Because of the length of the cord, I have to keep my Drobo situated right under my desk, where it gets very hot with the computer on and has very little ventilation. Seems like the USB extension is the perfect solution for this.
I just measured it out and I think I can make it work around 10-12 ft. Can you point me to an example of a specific cable that would work for these purposes?
For example, how is this one?
