By default Mendeley saves PDFs in the following directories:

Windows

\Users\NAME\AppData\Local\Mendeley Ltd\Desktop\Downloaded\

OS X

/Users/NAME/Library/Application/Support/Mendeley/Desktop/Downloaded/

LINUX

/home/NAME/.local/share/data/Mendeley Ltd./Mendeley Desktop/Downloaded/

If you delete the PDF file from your hard drive, you will be unable to open the file in the program.
