exchange 2013 randomly deletes calendar, contacts and emails on Outlook 2013. It seems that it fails on activesync from Outlook to the exchange server. If I work on OWA everything is fine.

This happens just on your Outlook according to the above. Delete the Outlook Account Profile (this is Exchange), restart Outlook, make a new Account Profile and test again.

If owa its working fine then , there is no issues with the mailbox and I would suspect Outlook or email client on mobile device - as you have already reconfigured the profile - it may be a server rule on Outlook.

I added a brand new user to the AD, exchange and on a brand new work station. Same issue.

10:48:42 Error synchronizing message 'testing august'
10:48:42              [80004005-501-80004005-324]
10:48:42              The client operation failed.
10:48:42              Microsoft Exchange Information Store
10:48:42              For more information on this failure, click the URL below:

10:48:42 Moved a message that failed synchronization to 'Local Failures'. Message subject -> 'testing august'. You can view this message in your offline folder only

The problem is not likely an Exchange problem. Exchange works well and in your case OWA is working.

Smart Devices are not involved according to your tests.

Multiple users are involved and new user profile has the same issue.

So then:  Look for conflicting software on your computers (legacy software, conflicts, conflicting anti virus software and so on).

I solved the issue. I had to shut down every exchange service one at a time. Leave them off for 5 minutes and then boot them up one by one again.  I'm not sure which was it was that fixed it, but it's fixed. I know it was the information store as I tried that one separately and it didn't do anything.
