After redeploying, I lost the uploaded images in the directory

After redeploying, I lost the uploaded images in the directory. My project uses Spring Boot v3.1.2 + Java v17. This is the way I am currently using to store uploaded files
Solution:
If its the second one, that service storage is ephemeral, meaning that it will erase itself on every deploy/redeploy of that service

Are you using railway volumes? Or are you storing ur files in a dir inside the service/dockerfile?

And thats why the first one (volumes) exists.

I am currently using the second approach you mentioned. So, the solution would be either using railway volumes as you mentioned or storing the files in the cloud and saving the file paths in the database, right? I am storing the uploaded images directly within my project

you got it volumes are likely easier to set up

If I use the railway volumes option, do I have to pay an additional fee? My website serves very simple needs, so I'm currently using the Hobby package. I don't want to incur any additional costs. I would greatly appreciate everyone's response

Thank you for everyone's assistance. I think to avoid incurring additional fees, I will handle file uploads by storing them in Google Drive

not the best idea tbh, we would all recommend an s3 based storage solution like Cloudflare r2
