I just bought a 3TB Network Had Drive. I want to transfer the Recovery Partition to the new HD then remove the partition from the Computer Hard drive. I could either Transfer the partion, but I would like to transfer the files only to a Share called "Backup" and still keep it available for recovery.

The would be somewhat of a headache. You would need a startup CD that could create partitions, so you could partition the drive that replaced the presumable failed one and it would also need network capabilities so you could bring the data back over to the partiton you just created.

I'm assuming you want to remove the partition to make more room? Why not just install a bigger hard drive in the computer?

The hard drive didn't fail, I want to keep the recovery drive separate from the physical hard drive in case the hard drive fails. I also want to clear up the memory on the hard drive so the computer could run faster.

You can clone it by some clone method or copy usually. Partimage or clonezilla may work. All sorts of live cd's to dd or tar it over.

I too am not big on the idea but your choice.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

I understand the hard drive hasn't failed yet, I'm talking about the steps you would have to take in the future to get the new drive to work.

" I also want to clear up the memory on the hard drive so the computer could run faster."

Hard drives don't contain memery (sans the cache memory but that not what we're talking about here. Filling up the hard drive with data doesn't make your computer run slower. RAM memory and hard drive space are two totally different things.
