Do you refer to these lines: "License: Freeware" and "The license of 
this file & disk software is Freeware, you can free download and free 
use this File & Disk software."

That's indeed incorrect. I notified them.

Apart from that, it's really not a good idea to download software from 
a proprietary site that's available on the project site as well... you 
don't know what you get, and the third-party site might not be up-to-date.
