You see two things on the screen.

The first files are part of creating a (copy-protected) diskimage for openMSX.
The tool (written by Wouter) is capable of storing all the low level track-info of the original disk. So the copy protection remains intact and you can run those disks in openMSX without resorting to a hacked/cracked version.

The second files are indeed some of the VDP probing tools here. Newer PC's come without a floppy interface so the openMSX crew had to do some elaborate transfering to get the files from USB stick to actual disks for the real hardware.
