Add Default Backup Checksum Option to SSMS GUI
SSMS should have a checkbox under Server Properties, on the Database Settings page, labeled something like "Use Backup Checksums" that would toggle the sp_configure setting for "backup checksum default". This would make it easier for people to enable backup checksum default, which is a good "best practice" that the tooling should encourage.
Check out SSMS 18.0 Preview 4 where we have added this option to the UI.
This is a Preview Release so please take that into account before installing.
