I wonder if the tool uses some of the BIOS routines to actually write
the sectors. If so, one could hijack those routines and write the data
to a separate file.
When I've written different formats and such, I usually go straight to
the hardware port but that is only because I don't understand how the
BIOS routines handle disk parameters, well enough to know what I'm doing.
Just a thought.
