This generates the desired strings as we can see by looking at the FullForm.

"file" <> ToString[#] & /@ Range[4]
% // FullForm
{"file1", "file2", "file3", "file4"}
List["file1", "file2", "file3", "file4"]

This generates the symbols.
Symbol["file" <> ToString[#]] & /@ Range[4]
% // FullForm
{file1, file2, file3, file4}
List[file1, file2, file3, file4]

Functional programming is generally much easier than procedural programming.
