Re: usb cables matter!!!
I do not work for any place with sensitive data but I would just make a copy of whatever it is and use that to transfer the data. I've got a few usb cables laying around, and they are just standard cables, a couple are usb 3.x and I do use those more often but I have never lost and data from just using standard usb cables. The "audiophile" usb cables sounds more like advertising hype just to get more of your $$$
