Strapi Media Library keeps disappearing

Hi,

I have a Strapi CMS on DigitalOcean and all the uploaded files keep disappearing after some time. I can still see the names of the files, but the actual images/documents are missing. Do you have any idea what could be causing this?

Thanks in advance,
Stefan
