We called it "the archives".  It wasn't just a filing cabinet.  By "archives" we meant two floors of a building where old documents were stored for seven years.  After that time, they were put on microfilm to reduce bulk.  Come to think of it, the same building (the Hall of Records) had a special department called "Archives" where marriage certificates, birth certificates, land deeds, etc. were stored. 

 

If you are talking about a filing cabinet (or even several of them), I'd suggest "dead files". 

 

Remember that these terms may vary from business to business, agency to agency.
