Is the USB2 cable connecting the dRobo with the computer creating a bottleneck?

If the dRobo and USB2 connection are indeed slowing data transfer, should I upgrade the desktop's internal drive from one, to a four terabyte capacity?

OR...

Is an aging 2009 iMac itself the "bottleneck"?

The USB 2.0 connection is, indeed, a bottleneck.

A late 2009 iMac does not have USB 3.0 or Thunderbolt.  Of the available external ports, Firewire 800 is your best bet.
