bug#19437: Enhancement/feature request: Undo quick format

Since quick formatting a disk doesn't actually wipe the data on a disk, and only overwrites a small part of it, it should be possible to have an option to back up the portion that will be overwritten. That portion, although small, can be detrimental to filesystem recovery and a small backup of it with an undo-option could rescue a lot of mistakes.
