You don't actually need dedicated disks for Swift (although it is strongly recommended). If this is just for testing, you can do couple of things.

  1. You can create a sparsely allocated disk image with a format like qcow2 and mount that. That is the way would recommend doing it for learning purposes.

  2. You can also just use a directory without a backing disk, physical or virtual.

Those are the options I would recommend to start testing Swift. Never use them for imporant data though.
