The Assets and Helpers Plugin
On Servd, local volumes aren't guaranteed to persist over any extended period of time - it's one of the ways we make high availability work on every project.
Rather than just leave you to figure out an alternative, the Servd Assets and Helpers plugin comes to the rescue. Simply install it, configure it and then use it like any other Craft assets volume. You'll even get a few additional perks for your trouble. 😃
Installing The Plugin With Composer
compose require servd/craft-asset-storage
Installing The Plugin Via The Control Panel
Navigate to the Plugin Store in the Craft control panel
Search for 'Servd'
Select the 'Servd Assets and Helpers' plugin, scroll down and click 'Install'
