Theory says you should store a NiMH pack partialy charged and cycle it every few weeks, I have left them for more than that with no problems.

I let 6 relatively new packs (3 3300s & 3 3700s) sit for about 8 weeks with no charge and when I went to use them was very disappointed with the results. Everything from dead cells to only putting out 6 volts

James,I would go over to the Axxis thread and ask Isaac how to get them back,I had done my 3300's the same way and tried his method for refreshing them and it seemed to work pretty good,I have them stored fully charged now.
