Option to enable auto backups during droplet creation

When creating a new droplet, let the user enable the auto backup feature providing a checkbox for it.

A user can easily forget to enable it after droplet creating and it can be fatal.

    We've moved enabling backups to the droplet create page so you can do it now from there immediately when the droplet is created. Thanks, Moisey

    Also would be great if had the info about the backup enabled/disabled in table listing the droplets (i.e. https://www.digitalocean.com/droplets)
