Diagrams don't necessarily need to depict actual entities, they can have conceptual ones as well.
But in this case the main information I want to show in this part of the design document is "which part of the system receives or produces which file, and when".
But I would just use a sequence diagram with a note on the diagram.Thank you for the suggestion.
The drawback of that approach is that the note is just verbal, and does not make the file a first-class citizen of the UML project.
