How to manage Data files in Mendix

Hi, In my current deployment All the files ( physical) are going under local Deployment directory ( C:\Mendix\Projects\PROJECT1\deployment\data\files) or on my onprem deployment location (D:\Apps\Apps\ESAS\Project\data\files). Is there any method to keep this files in different directory or location to ensure when the size of files growing not impacting the application and also we can ensure proper backup of those physical files. Idea is to separate files from deployment directory.
