When i set my uploads path to ../ on file system, my files inside the css folder get deleted when i clear the cache. My aim is to be able to upload my files on the root outside drupal installation which is possible so far except the deletion of my files. I tried deleting the content of the .htaccess file that gets created in the root folder but there's no luck.
My directory structure is:
-------menu.css(file that get erased)
----other HTML files
