I want to be able to setup a dmz network for sensitive data as requested by one of my clients, what is the best way to do this? I have a MS based network with server 2008 as my dc and a draytek 2920 router.

You can do this one of two ways.  I am not sure if your router supports this or not.  If so you will need a new router.

Option1: Single Router (pick your own interfaces I just called them eth0-3)
See image here: 3 Legged Firewall
Use your router to create a new network:
eth0: Client Network 192.168.1.0/24
eht1: DMZ Network 172.16.23.0/24
eth3: WAN Network [public network here]

You would then put your dmz server in that new network and create firewall rules to allow or disallow traffic to it.

Option 2: Dual Router
See Image here:Dual Router Configuration
This is a layered approach
Router 1 [WAN Facing]
eth0: WAN Network [public network here]
eth1: DMZ Network 172.16.23.0/24

Router 2 [LAN Facing]
eth0: DMZ Network 172.16.23.0/24
eth1: LAN Network 192.168.1.0/24

You will need to create static or dynamic routes on router 1 and 2 to direct traffic between them and allow traffic to and from the internet.  Option one is the least complex but least secure out of the two solutions.

Sensitive data should not be stored in DMZ network. Did you mean to say you need separate / isolated network for sensitive data?

Draytek 2920 support VLAN. You can create a separate VLAN network and assign it to one of the port on the Draytek. Then connect a separate switch to it. To that switch connect any clients or servers that need access to sensitive data. You can configure inter-LAN traffic not to be allowed between VLANs.
