In my lab enviroment I have a two member DAG and one CAS/HT server. The file share witness is located on the C: drive of the CAS/HT server. I was applying updates and rebooted all the servers. Somehow when th CAS/HT server came up the FSW was gone and I don't have a backup of it. Since every server was rebooted the DAG databases fail to mount with the error "the server must be a member of a DAG" and "the DAG must have quorum". I have tried the
Set-DatabaseAvailabilityGroup command but that failed with the error "there are no more endpoints available from the endpoint mapper". Is there anyway to recreate the FSW and get the quorum back? Do I just need to recreate the DAG.

What do you mean the FSW was gone? You mean the folder?

Try recreating the folder and sharing it out again.
