Just a noticed that vssadmin seems to be missing from this version of windows at least it does not run:
C:\Windows>vssadmin /?
'vssadmin' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.


dir /s reveals a copy located here but that does not run either:
Directory of C:\Windows\WinSxS\amd64_microsoft-windows-vssadmin_31bf3856ad364e35_10.0.17763.1_none_b5433f5589cd1455

     1 File(s)   143,872 bytes

C:\Windows>C:\Windows\WinSxS\amd64_microsoft-windows-vssadmin_31bf3856ad364e35_10.0.17763.1_none_b5433f5589cd1455\vssadmin.exe
Unable to load message for id 40002710 - 317
Unable to format message for id 40002bc1 - 317


Any thoughts?

Edit: The vssadmin.exe file does exist in system32 but will not run. Using a copy from 1803 works just fine. So hopefully this will be fixed when 1809 is re-released, The permissions and owner are identical between the two but even when at an admin cmd prompt dir vssadmin.exe returns:
C:\Windows\System32>dir vssadmin.exe
Volume in drive C is Windows
Volume Serial Number is 84F3-98D3

Directory of C:\Windows\System32

File Not Found

C:\Windows\System32>

But as you can see it is there:



Puzzleed?

Copying using explorer to another folder and running it gives:
C:\xx>vssadmin.exe /?
