Our org has switched to Lightning recently and, as expected, there is no Documents tab.

From what I've read the equivalent to Documents in LEX is Files.

I would like to know where are the actual documents (not the tab, but the .pdf, etc) that were previously on the Documents tab, since I don't see them on the Files tab.Are they kept somewhere?

Documents are not available in Lightning Experience. You need to switch back to Classic to access them.

  • This means the content of Documents can only be seen in Classic? So I'll have to upload all the documents I have to Files... SAD!

As Salesforce Lightning does not support the Documents. We can alternatively use this 'Astrea Lightning Documents' appexchange to view/Delete the Documents in Lightning
